Pirate’s Weekend in Sylvan Beach is back, and it's even bigger and better after a year off.

The 2021 Sylvan Beach Pirate’s Weekend is Thursday, July 15 – Sunday, July 18. It's an exciting weekend for people of all ages and features a ton of activities, including the popular Pirate’s Boat Parade on Saturday.

Pirate’s Weekend has all our favorites like the famous Pirate pub crawl, beach treasure hunts, live music, bonfire, sandcastle building contest, and Landshark recovery specials.

You won’t want to miss the adventure, so bring your best pirate spirit (voice, costume, and peg leg optional) for this community-wide event that brings people, and pirates, to Sylvan Beach! [Sylvan Beach Pirate’s Weekend 2021]
