Pirates Week 2014


Pirates Week 2014 runs from November 6 through the 16th.  Eleven fun filled days of music, street dances, competitions, games, wonderful local food and drink, kids day, sports events for everyone, Heritage Days, glittering parade, pirates invasion, and fireworks galore!  There is just too much going on for you to miss out on.

We start our festival with a fantastic steel pan competition and kick-off party and on Friday night the festival goes off with a bang with a spectacular fireworks display that you will not want to miss!  With the crowning of the Festival Queen and the opening Street Dance and Food Festival on that night there is no better place to be in the Caribbean.

On the first Saturday we have a mock 'pirate invasion' 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 of people line the streets to watch the spectacle and its all good-natured fun with a new twist every year.  Families just love it.  It's the only event of its kind in the Caribbean region.

The Cayman Islands Department of Tourism has a Visitor Information booth in the Customs hall of the Owen Roberts International Airport. The Visitor Information booth is fully stocked with the latest tourist publications, brochures and other information visitors may need during a visit to the Cayman Islands.

We hope to see you all in November, pirates and landlubbers alike with you all ready to have lots of fun with us in the Cayman Islands.  Please click here for detailed information on the event schedule.
