It’s not often a whole city gets involved in ‘make-believe’ to foster healthy imaginations but it does for one Festival weekend in September. Come join us to be a big part of something truly fantastical!
In case you haven’t noticed, Port Adelaide is THE place to be if you’re a pirate. It has 2 Tall Ships (and a ghost ship) and lots of hidden treasure.
It’s also the perfect place for kids to imagine the thrill of adventures on the high seas and for families to dress up and unleash their inner pirate.
The local crew of organisers has been behind the annual Pirates of Port Adelaide event since 2013.
In 2017 it has officially become a Pirate Festival and registered internationally as a legitimate (as much as an anarchic pirate can be legitimate) International Talk Like a Pirate Day event.
In 2013, during a visit of 3 Dutch Tall Ships, the Pirates of Port Adelaide hijacked the city and held the visiting hordes to ransom.
In 2014 & 2015, the Dutch Tall Ships were nervous about a repeat a visit but the ghostly City of Adelaide Clipper Ship returned home to join the Paaarty.
Who knows what excitement 2017 will hold...
