Event Series Event Series: Yorktown Pirate Invasion Weekend

Yorktown Pirate Invasion Weekend

April 24, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Step back into the Golden Age of piracy as Riverwalk Landing and the Watermen’s Museum are invaded by seafaring marauders! Landlubbers of all ages are invited to visit the Historic Yorktown waterfront to learn lessons and legends from pirates’ lives in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Visit local businesses during our annual treasure hunt, explore a pirate encampment, and sing along with sea shanties!

You can even sail the stormy waters of the York River on the Schooner Alliance, with Captain Mayhem who’s always looking for pint-sized recruits to join his crew. No worries. We doubt he’ll make you walk the plank! While most of the family-friendly fun is free, all schooner sails do require a paid ticket.

Yorktown Market Days – Pirate Invasion Market – April 23, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Beware of pillagers as pirates invade Yorktown Market Days! At this special extended farmers market, you can shop for fresh produce and choose from a variety of fresh breads and pastries.

Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic—all York County sponsored and partner community events are subject to postponement or cancellation. This includes changes to dates, times, and locations.
