Beaufort Pirate Invasion
For two full days, you can step back in time with the sights and sounds of the 17th century as Beaufort comes alive with over a hundred pirate and militia
re-enactors as they overrun the town. Enjoy historical demonstrations such as sword fighting, cannon firing and see blackpowder weapons displays, a mock trial and hanging and so much more.

There will be activities for everyone young and old to enjoy throughout town, such as musical entertainment, magic shows, costume contest, storytelling, period encampments and vendors. With wide eyes and amazement, aspiring young pirates will enjoy the spontaneous shenanigans as the nefarious characters roam the streets and shops, engaging in mock battles, bursting into song, posing for pictures.
