Argh! It’s the 2017 Pirates Week Festival

Events |

Grand Cayman November 9th – 13th 2017

Pirates Week 2017 will be another five fun filled days with music, street dances, competitions, games, wonderful local food and drink, glittering parade, Heritage Day, pirate invasion and fireworks galore! There is just too much going on for you to miss out on.

The festival begins with a fantastic steel pan competition and kick-off party, and on Friday night the festival goes off with a bang with a spectacular fireworks display that you will not want to miss! With the crowning of the Festival Queen and the opening Street Dance and Food Festival on that night there is no better place to be in the Caribbean.

On Saturday November 12th, there will be a mock ‘pirate invasion’ from the sea! Two old-time sailing vessels, loaded with pirates make a surprise landing at the bowl-shaped George Town harbour with the pirates capturing the Governor. Thousands of people line the streets to watch the spectacle and its all good-natured fun with a new twist every year. Families just love it. It’s the only event of its kind in the Caribbean region.

We hope to see you all in November, pirates and landlubbers alike with you all ready to have lots of fun with us in the Cayman Islands.
