|Brixham Pirate Festival - dates TBC (4 May 2024 - 6 May 2024)|
The annual Brixham Pirate Festival, with a crew made up of first-time brigands and buccaneers, held in Brixham, Devon takes place over the Early May Bank Holiday weekend, is a swashbuckling mix of seaside shenanigans and pirate-themed fun for all the family. The Brixham Pirate Festival is a free to attend event that can only happen with the contributions and help from all of our amazing donors, sponsors, volunteers and friends please give what you can when you can to keep the festival alive - it’s never to late to donate!
Billed as “the annual gathering of the world’s most infamous pirates and lowly scallywags,” over the past decade the event has grown into hugely popular celebration of all things piratical. And all with the perfectly authentic backdrop of this charming historic port, which has been home to a number of smugglers and pirates over the centuries.
Wander round the harbour and discover all sorts of pirate antics, including live music, street performers, street theatre, balloon modeling, historical re-enactments, fancy dress competitions, children's activities and themed food and drink offerings. The daytime and early evenings are brilliant fun for all the family, while later on the adults can warm their tums with extra rations of rum in the many harbourside bars.
Come along, dress up as a pirate (an awful lot of people do) and even have a look around El Galeon. The whole town will be decked out in “skull and cross bones” while the sound of seagulls, shanties, skirmishes and with “arghhhh me hearties” floating through the air. There’s sure to be a real party atmosphere.
