Blackbeard’s back…and he’s out for revenge!
The notorious pirate captain storms the 4th annual Salem Pirate Faire
He has terrorized the Seven Seas for years. His very name strike fear in even the bravest of hearts. But now Edward Teach – the bloodthirsty monster known as Blackbeard – embarks on his final voyage, and he’s taking everyone with him…to Hell!
Pastimes Entertainment is pleased to announce the return of the Salem Pirate Faire to Winter Island Park! This is the fourth year for the wildly popular interactive theatrical event, which offers audiences young and old to meet the most storied pirates in history and literature and join them for their adventures on “Pirate Island.”
The Salem Pirate Faire is a unique daylong adventure that has become a fall tradition for thousands of would-be pirates in New England. The faire features a storyline that runs throughout the day, a number of interactive scenes designed to draw the audience in and make them a part of the show, games, music, food and refreshments, merchants in our “Tortuga Marketplace,” a children’s treasure hunt, costume contests, and much more!
This year’s story is inspired by the true story of Blackbeard’s final adventure, in which his short but bloody two-year reign of terror was ended by Lieutenant Robert Maynard off the coast of North Carolina (legend has it, Blackbeard was shot five times and stabbed more than 20 times during the battle, and fell only when a member of Lt. Maynard’s crew decapitated the pirate).
The 2007 Salem Pirate Faire is scheduled for Saturday, September 15 and Sunday, September 16 from 10 AM to 5 PM each day.
Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for students, seniors, and members of the military (with ID), and $5 for children ages 4 to 12. Premium on-site parking at Winter Island Park is $5 per carload, and free parking is available at nearby Salem Willows Park.
SAVE ON GAS! Winter Island Park is also accessible by public transit via the MBTA commuter rail and the Salem Trolley.
