Bath, North Carolina is the true home of Blackbeard!
Few places in America have a legitimate reason to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the life and death of the world’s best-known pirate-privateer. Many towns celebrate a fictional, pop-culture Blackbeard.
In October 2018, Bath, North Carolina, will portray the history of the one and only Blackbeard and the men who were real colonial American pirates!
Be a part of history on October 19-20, 2018, when the Town of Bath and the Greater Bath Foundation proudly observe the Tricentennial of the notorious Blackbeard, his crew, and their families who bravely established North Carolina’s oldest town, the state’s first port, its oldest standing brick church, and the foundations of our nation. How we honor Bath’s heritage that weekend will be remembered by the ages!
