Outer Banks Pirate Festival – CANCELED

CANCELED

It is with a heavy heart that we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s OBX Pirate Festival. We hope to be able to host this event next year and hope that we can see you there.


Ahoy Mateys! Get ready for a swashbucklin’ good time as Kitty Hawk Kites hosts the Outer Banks Pirate Festival.

Pirates of Blackbeard’s Crew and mateys will be camped out at Jockey’s Ridge Crossing. Come learn the vast history of pirates on the OBX, and participate in Scalawag school for the little ones to see if they have what it take to be a part of Blackbeards’ Crew
