The Festival Queen will be crowned and the Street Dance event and the Food Festival will ensure you get to experience the very best of Caribbean culture.
Watch out for the pirate invasion
The first Saturday features a breath-taking pirate invasion and if you ever wanted to witness the spectacle of a marauding horde of pirates coming to land with the intention of ransacking the local area, this is safest and most fun way to do. This invasion is led by two traditional sailing vessels that are packed to the gunnels with pirates. The landing takes place at the harbour in George Town and the pirates are on the lookout for the Governor, so they can capture him. This spectacle is watched by thousands of people every year and even people who have witnessed the invasions before will find something worth watching as there is always a new twist to the invasion. When it comes to thrilling fun that is enjoyable for all of the family, this is one of the very few pirate invasions you want to be at.
Pirates Week Festival is taken very seriously and the fact that many streets are closed off allows everyone to get involved in a safe manner. There is a real friendly and family focus to the events offered during Pirates Week Festival and there are day and evening events which means that everyone can join in the fun and find something that caters perfectly to their needs.
