Cayman Islands Pirates Week Festival 2016


The only event of its kind in the Caribbean region!


11 days of music, street dances, competitions, games, local food 
and drink, kids day, glittering parade, sports events for everyone, Heritage Days, pirate invasion and fireworks galore! 


On the first Saturday the infamous mock pirate invasion 
is staged from the sea 

Two old-time sailing vessels loaded with pirates make a Saturday surprise landing at the bowl-shaped George Town harbor with the pirates capturing the Governor. Thousands line the streets to watch the fun spectacle, and there's a new twist every year.
