Privateers, buccaneers, marauders, and freebooters... alas, a pirate by any other name is still a pirate. 
They rob, they plunder, they poach and yet Marcus Hook welcomes them with open arms every September for the biggest, baddest Pirate Bash of the Summer!

The Hook's 9th Annual Pirate Festival is Saturday, September 16th from 11am to 6pm on the banks of the Delaware River... just a few steps from Delco's most recent addition to PA's Historic Registry - The Plank House. Legend has it that the infamous pirate, Captain Blackbeard supposedly kept a mistress there!

Enjoy a full pirate encampment with period tents, demonstrations and pirates showcasing their wares, firearms, cannons and beer making skills.  

Families will want to steer their way over to the park area for crazy games, great food, live pirate music, face painting, pony rides, a petting zoo, crafters, a beer garden and more. 

All funds raised during this event go towards the ongoing restoration project of the historic Plank House, aka Blackbeard's Mistress's House.

The Marcus Hook Preservation Society are the owners and caretakers of this one of a kind, hand-sawn plank log house. It is their mission to restore this house to museum quality. 

Before summer walks the plank, 'treasure' this fun day on the Delaware River while helping raise money to restore Delco's Pirate Roots.
