You are cordially invited to attend the marriage of Captain James Hook at the 5th annual Salem Pirate Faire!

The Salem Pirate Faire, New England’s original pirate-themed festival, is back for a fifth year! Pastimes Entertainment is pleased to announce its return to Winter Island Park for this wildly popular interactive theatrical event, which offers audiences young and old a chance to meet the most storied pirates in history and literature, and join them for their adventures on “Pirate Island.”

Last year, Blackbeard met his end on Pirate Island, but left behind a king’s ransom in treasure. This year, Captain Hook and Captain William Kidd, the reluctant pirate, are racing against time and each other to find the missing fortune, while several eligible bachelorettes clamber for the chance to become Mrs. Captain Hook, Queen of the Pirates!

The Salem Pirate Faire is a unique daylong adventure that has become a fall tradition for thousands of would-be pirates in New England. The faire features a storyline that runs throughout the day, a number of interactive scenes designed to draw the audience in and make them a part of the show, games, music, food and refreshments, merchants in our “Tortuga Marketplace,” a children’s treasure hunt, costume contests, and much more!

The 2008 Salem Pirate Faire is scheduled for Saturday, September 20 and Sunday, September 21 from 10 AM to 5 PM each day. This is a rain or shine event!

SAVE ON GAS! Winter Island Park is also accessible by public transit via the MBTA commuter rail and the Salem Trolley.
