Avast, Me Hearties, SAVE THE DATE! 23 & 24 September 2017.
Th' pirates be returnin' t' Port Adelaide.
Don’t lie to me. You totally love pirates. Everyone does. Because, let’s face it, pirates are cool. Like really cool!!
It’s not often a whole city gets involved in ‘make-believe’ to foster healthy imaginations but it does for one weekend in September and you can be a big part of making it 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, 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 Pirates of Port Adelaide Festival is a FREE family event at which, this year, the Guinness World Record for a gathering of pirates could easily be broken. The record is currently 14,231 in Hastings UK on 22 July 2012. Will ye be part of the invasion by donnin' yer best eye patch, bandana? Yarr!
In the meantime, how about helping out with marketing and promotion by pledging to the Pirates of Port Adelaide Pozible campaign. Tattoos, stickers, personalised pirate flags and tall ship sailing trips are just some of the rewards for your pledges.
Subscribe to the Pirates of Port Adelaide Facebook page and to the website. The exclusive Pirate Treasure Map where you'll find that X marks the spot, will be shared and you can be in the running to win an iPad and lots of other fantastic prizes!

My friends cheekily call me a pirate because, in the past, I captained a number of vessels in the Gulf. From that vantage point, all sailors know that all routes lead Port Adelaide and there be the treasure. Yarr!
