Gangs of blackbeards and beauties will swashbuckle their way through Philipsburg Manor at this raucously fun festival.
Ahoy maties! Grab your brood and bring 'em to Philipsburg Manor for the most fun this side of the Caribbean. Join us as boisterous pirates lay anchor in the Hudson and storm Sleepy Hollow. Musical pirates, gypsy sword dancers, and scallywags of all sorts will roam the grounds, ready to make you smile while secretly stealin’ yer gold. Kids can take part in the Pieces of Eight treasure hunt, wiggle their way into a pirate shipwreck, get their picture taken with a mermaid and a clever, talkative parrot named Peterwick, and learn to act like a bloody pirate!
Get scarred for life (well, for a day at least) at Lady Molly Roger's Tattoo Shoppe. Pirate skirmishes will no doubt break out...protect your flank! Test your cannon shot capabilities and help take out the British in Davy Jones’ Revenge!
Learn about pirate treasure
Gold and jewels may make for a lovely bounty, but they were not the only items sought by plunderers of the high seas. In our special presentation of 'What is Pirate Treasure?', discover the real prizes of the 18th century and learn about the Philipse family's connection to the pirate trade. This enlightening exhibit takes place inside the Manor House and only during Pirates of the Hudson!
A cuppa Captain Lawrence!
