PIRATES WEEK

PIRATES WEEK

ABOARD OUR ISLANDS FOR PIRATES WEEK

Our Pirates Week Festival is the premiere Cayman Islands’ national festival. Awaiting you is a week of swashbuckling to be had by all. With parades, games, music, and fireworks there is something for every buccaneer to enjoy.


 

WELCOME PARADE AND PIRATE INVASION

For one week in November, each of the Cayman Islands is invaded by pirates and there will be plenty of plunder for scallywags and landlubbers alike. The festivities begin in Cayman Brac with a welcome parade, followed by a bonfire after sunset and the first fireworks display of the week.

The fun then moves on to Grand Cayman, where the action really picks up. Here, you and your friends and family can experience five fun-filled days of music, parades, competitions, games and stunning fireworks displays. The festival later takes over Hog Sty Bay in George Town, with a pirate invasion where the Governor is captured. The revelry concludes in the intimate setting of Little Cayman, with a barbeque to bid farewell until next year’s celebration.
