The Pirates are Coming!!


It’s that time of year again—time for the Bald Head Island Pirate Festival!

Be here August 2-4 as pirates arrive by tall ship and take over the island for several days of unbridled revelry. Events include an island takeover by the pirate ship Meka, a pirate party in the harbor, gun powder demonstrations and sword fighting, music by Rusty Cutlass, grub ship, duck race, pirate pancake breakfast, pirate games, crafts and an island-wide treasure hunt with proceeds benefiting the Old Baldy Foundation. It’s sure to be a weekend of pirates, history and fun for everyone – pirates included!

Tickets are on sale now and a complete schedule of events is available at the Old Baldy Foundation’s website.
