November’s Pirates Fest Calendar has plenty for everyone

The Ministry of Youth, Sports, Culture & Heritage has a slew of Pirates Fest events to fill up November’s calendar.

With cultural and heritage events, vying with competitions, dances, races, food festivals and family days; this year’s Pirates Fest 2022 promises something for everyone. For the first time in a few years, wannabe wenches and buccaneers can indulge their inner Jack Sparrow by donning pirates garb while learning some tidbits about local pirate lore.

MYSCH Minster, Hon. Bernie Bush said: “We’ve collaborated with a host of private entities to bring the Cayman Islands a national festival that will include new elements while retaining plenty of the old, too.

It’s been an immense undertaking and we are hoping that the community will rally round and support Pirates Fest by attending as many events as they can. With the pandemic, we experienced communal isolation. It has been a trying two years for many of us with a lot of uncertainty and hardship along the way. This festival is one of the ways that we can embrace the new normal. We have consciously planned for more, but smaller events which nevertheless still evoke that community feel. 2022 is our first year at the helm, it’s been a steep learning curve with an incredibly tight planning window but we feel we have already succeeded in laying the groundwork for Pirates Fest 2023. We will start planning for the next one as soon as this one is over.”
