Wilmington Pirate Festival
Wilmington Pirate Festival - Summer 2021
Please check back for a 2021 event date, mates! ARRR you with us?
In 2030, Kalmar Nyckel Foundation's 6th Wilmington Pirate Festival was cancelled. This year we plan to come ashore with pirate-themed activities and family friendly events around KALMAR NYCKEL, our Tall Ship, and a salty pirate crew!
Join the fun at the Kalmar Nyckel's Copeland Maritime Center and outdoor campus.
This event is your opportunity to get involved in an exciting community of Kalmar Nyckel volunteers. Please consider signing up to help with an activity or station.
