The 8th Annual Pirate Festival will be held on
Saturday, September 17, 2016 from 11am to 6pm.
This festival includes a full pirate encampment with period tents, demonstrations and showcases their wares, firearms, cannons and beer making. In the Park area we will have games, food, live pirate music, face painting, pony rides, petting zoo, crafters, beer garden and much, much more, including Minnow, the Mermaid. Catey Hill from WJBR 99.5 will host our event from 12 to 4pm. All funds raised during this event go towards the ongoing restoration project of the historic Plank House, aka Blackbeard's Mistress's House.
The Marcus Hook Preservation Society are the owners and caretakers of this one of a kind, hand-sawn plank log house. It is not only our mission, but our desire to restore this house to museum quality. So join us on the river in Marcus Hook---aarrrrg!
