The Brixham Pirate Festival

Celebrating The 12th Year!

One of Britain’s biggest and best (in our humble opinion), Pirate Festivals!

The Brixham Pirate Festival began in 2007 when members of the community decided to create an event to liven up one of the quietist bank holidays of the year.

Since those humble beginnings, the festival has grown into one of the biggest pirate gatherings in the world, and attracts people from all four corners to partake in a weekend of Piratical merriment!


Saturday April 30 : 10am-5pm
Sunday May 1 : 10am-5pm
Monday May 2 : 11am-4pm
