Entertainment, Shows, and Performances

At the Ontario Pirate Festival we've got more entertainment than the crew's got scurvy! The most incredible performers and musicians have gathered from all shores to our town of Dry Bluffs, for no reason other than your amusement and amazement.

(And if you'd like distractions of a louder, rowdier, and more racous nature, check out The Captain's Keg party on Saturday night - it's gonna be off the hook! Hook! That's pirate humor, there...)

Variety Stage Performers
(subject to change without notice)
Zoltan the Adequate A show full of bizarre feats of fire and dangerous stunts of daring-do! Come see Zoltan meddle with magic and risk life and limb (and maybe end up with a hook hand - or two), all for your amusement! This salty trickster is sure to awe and amaze you; it's a spectacle that's not to be missed! Brilliant? Amazing? No! Just Adequate.
Alaska the Lostboy The Pretty Prince of Pain hails all the way from the Coney Island Sideshow - with daredevil antics and expertise in all things sharp n' shiny, this aerial show in chains will leave you gasping.
The Eyrie
Falconry Show
Pirates had parrots and you can anagram 'parrots' to 'raptors', so maybe pirates had fighting birds as well? A demonstration of how humans and hunting birds work together. A chance to see these incredible birds in flight is a rare thing, indeed.
Lassie Leans Circus
Kira DiPietrantonio
Kira DiPietrantonio, the Leaning Lassie, is an international circus performer who specializes in juggling, contortion, and handstands (she's been training since she was six years old!). Her one-woman show is bound to impress, entertain, and inspire you to follow your dreams!
Sibling Rivalry A swordfighting show that pits sister against brother for control of their parents' pirate crew - fighting with swords and words, and both are razor-sharp!
Pirate Life Theatre A show geared particularly towards your wee pirates - help the pirates of the Neptune's Wife search out Bad Bones the Bad Pirate. Learn the pirate creed and become part of the crew!

Musicians in the Thirsty Parrot Pub

The Pirates McKenna Two brothers (the heart and the whimsy of Hamilton's Steel City Rovers) present classic shanties and Celtic tunes, with a little mischievous fun and a lot of rollicking enthusiasm
Three Pieces of Eight
(with guests from Erin's Marlore)
A band formed by the mutinous members of other bands, they made their debut last year at the Ontario Pirate Festival! An immediate festival favourite
The Pub Sing There's no better way to end than to gather in the pub with all the pirates of Dry Bluffs. We'll sing sea shanties both bawdy and serene, tell a few jokes and tales, toast our friends and enemies, and send you off at the end of an incredible day.

Encampments and Atmosphere

Jade Dragons
Pirate Encampment
Come visit Captain Charity Ann Rackham and Quartermaster Flint! They bring with them a touch of education, a swash of character, and delightful interaction in the form of games. Complete the Pirate Queen's Challenge at 2pm and earn your personal Pirate Certification!
Cut and Run
Pirate Encampment
Join Captain William Blydes and Jenny Teacups for a round of pirate lore and general tomfoolery! Pirate entertainment and education! And a (foam-sword) fighting pit where you can learn to fight like a pirate!
The Vikings
of Vinland

Viking Encampment
Invading the Ontario Pirate Festival (in only the best way), the Vikings of Vinland bring an incredible cultural experience. See how the Norsemen live, purchase their wares, and participate in their games, exercises, and demonstrations. But take heed... the Vikings are expanding...
Steeltown Mermaids   
Mermaid Grotto
Do Mermaids exist? This one sure does! Come visit Pearl in her grotto away from home or find her somewhere about the festival. Swimming in from Hamilton, this Steeltown Mermaid is fin-tastic.
Captain Carnegie Life-sized pirate puppet Captain Carnegie walks the streets of Dry Bluffs, with bits of pirate knowledge to share.
Sparky the Dragon Our (good-natured and very friendly) Pirate Dragon Sparky walks about the village in search of his golden hoard. Find him and help him look (or maybe just give him a hug).
