Pirates Week 2019 Dates Announced!

Perhaps no other Caribbean nation celebrates its pirate legends and cultural heritage quite like the Cayman Islands, which erupts into a festival of spectacle and pageantry during our annual Pirates Week in November.

Pirates Week 2019 will start in Cayman Brac on Friday 1st November, move on to Grand Cayman on Thursday 7th November and finish up Friday 17th November in Little Cayman and will be another eleven fun filled days of mock “pirate invasions” and celebration of our culture and heritage! Spectators will also enjoy a series of parades and fireworks displays, street dances, costume contests, sporting competitions, happy hours, a celebration of traditional foods, music and much more, stretching across all three islands.

Before we head into the Grand Cayman Festival, the island will celebrate its well-loved District Days! Over the span of 5 days, each district in Grand Cayman will celebrate the aspects that make these beautiful islands so unique.

2019 District Days will be held between 12th and 16th November. Stay tuned for a confirmed District Heritage Day schedule.

We start the Grand Cayman festival with a fantastic happy hour and kick-off party on Thursday 7th November and on Friday night, the festival goes off with a bang with a spectacular firework display that is not to be missed!

After the fireworks, we move straight into the annual festivities; there’s no better place to be in the Caribbean. Whether you are visiting Little Cayman, Cayman Brac or Grand Cayman for their individual Pirates Week celebrations, you are sure to have fun!
