Blackbeard Pirate Festival

This raucous festival was first held during OpSail 2000 to celebrate Hampton's maritime heritage and relationship with the notorious menace, Blackbeard—aka Edward Teach. Living history and family fun go hand-in-hand as Hampton reenacts and celebrates the demise of Blackbeard, one of the fiercest pirates ever known. Immerse yourself in the early 1700s in Hampton with live entertainment, pirate encampment, children's activities, sea battles, fireworks, and more.
