It’s not often a whole city gets involved in ‘make-believe’ to foster healthy imaginations but it does for one Festival weekend each year. 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.
218In 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 visit but the ghostly City of Adelaide Clipper Ship returned home to join the Paaarty.
In 2017 it officially became 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.
Who knows what excitement we'll have together in the future...
