Swashbucklers of all ages will converge on the banks of the T-ARRRGH River, a pirate's paradise located in Uptown Greenville! Returning for its 16th year to the Greenville Town Common and river district, festivities will include fine arts and crafts for sale, live music stages, BMX shows, beer and wine gardens, sword fighting, pirate encampments, roving pirate bands, mermaids, and more! This festival culminates in a headlining concert featuring country music duo Maddie & Tae!

There will be plenty of piratical happenings for the whole family!

Greenville as the home of the East Carolina University Pirates and heart of Pirate Nation, really embodies and embraces the pirate history and culture of our region. Many current and former ECU students, families, and pirate lovers from all over the country make their way to this all day festival to enjoy live music stages during the day, and the headlining concert at sunset on the river.
