Pirate Party on the Beach

May 14, 2016 to May 15, 2016


Dairy Queen Grill & Chill 17th Street Park
Free Event

The Pirate Party on the Beach returns to the Dairy Queen Grill & Chill 17th Street Park at the Virginia Beach oceanfront Saturday-Sunday, May 14-15, for two rollicking days of music, mayhem, and more!  This family-friendly event features activities designed to bring out the “pirate” in everyone.  Costume contests, games, a treasure hunt, pirate re-enactors, and movie on the beach all combine to celebrate those scallywags we all wish we could be: pirates.

When arriving at the Pirate Party on the Beach, beware of those scurvy scallywags, The Moody Crewe.  These pirate re-enactors will be posing for photographs, singing sea shanties, and demonstrating swordplay.  The Moody Crewe loves landlubbers, and this merry band of pirates will entertain as well as educate.  Joining the Moody Crewe will be the Loose Cannon Company and Overland Crew.

Saturday features a full day of activities.  The pirate stunt show by Shadow Players Stage Combat Group features actors in authentic costumes, sword-play, and audience interaction.  The show will be presented several times throughout each day.  On Saturday dress like a pirate and enter the costume contest!

Also on Saturday, participate in Cap’n Pete’s Treasure Hunt at 6:30pm!

On both days, enjoy arts and crafts and displays by participating museum organizations like the Old Coast Guard Station and Mariner's Museum.

Other activities throughout the weekend include bandana-making, face-painting, storytelling, weapons demonstrations, and shopping for pirate-themed merchandise.

Pirate Party on the Beach is FREE and open to the public.
