Pirate Jamboree

Ocracoke Island's annual Pirate Jamboree begins later this week, and continues for four days.

From Thursday, October 25, through Sunday, October 28, Ocracoke will host pirate reenactment crews as they invade by land and sea. 

But that's just the beginning. Throughout the four days residents and visitors can enjoy musical entertainment, magic shows, history, period encampments, vendors and a live battle with cannons on Silver Lake.

Along with all of the swashbuckling events will be a Brigand’s Bazaar, a vendor fair, held in the heart of the festival on the Historic Wahab Estate Lawn, adjacent to the Pirate Encampment. Brigand’s Bazaar will feature local artists in every medium – fine crafts, metal smiths, pottery, jewelry, wood, painting, textiles and more!

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is an essay by Philip Howard explaining why he decided to stay on the island as Hurricane Florence approached. You can read it here:

    The modern day use of a pirate flag is to mark and call attention to your yard sale. Just get a long piece of bamboo tie the pirate flag to the pole and you are good to go for the green.DD
