Pirates Invade Yorktown

Saturday, April 27, 2019

Step back into the Golden Age of Piracy as Riverwalk Landing and the Watermen's Museum are invaded by seafaring marauders. Landlubbers of all ages are invited to visit the Historic Yorktown waterfront April 27 & 28 to learn lessons and legends from pirates’ lives in the 17th and 18th centuries.

There will be hands-on activities, and a treasure hunt for the kids. Explore our pirate encampment, attend pirate school, and witness a pirate trial! Sing along with sea shanties and don’t miss the exciting cannon demonstrations. 

You can even sail the stormy waters of the York River on the Schooner Alliance, with Captain Mayhem who’s always looking for pint-sized recruits to join his crew. No worries. We doubt he’ll make you walk the plank! While most of the family-friendly fun is free, all schooner sails do require a paid ticket. 

Be sure to follow this event for our exciting schedule of activities—coming soon!
