HARRIMAN, TN – The fourth annual Tennessee Pirate Fest is a costumed, family-fun event will take place 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 12-13 and Oct. 19-20 at the Tennessee Medieval Faire site in Harriman -- just 30 miles west of Turkey Creek. All are invited to escape to the fictional Caribbean town of Port Royale in the Tortugas, circa 1685.
Back by popular demand will be the Patron Costume Contest, where prizes will be awarded based on audience applause. Also returning will be the Pirate Gong Show, where guests will be invited to share their talents to join a pirate crew. There will also be a Pirate School where you can learn to walk, talk, and sing like a pirate.
Continuous professional pirate entertainment will include interactive comedy shows, live pirate music, costumed British and pirate street characters, Combat Croquet, beach games, photo ops, pirate displays, and original crafts. Food and hot and cold beverages, including beer, will be available for purchase.
Tickets are $16 for ages 13+, $8 for ages 5 to 12; and entry will be free for ages 4 and under. Field parking will be free, and tickets will be available for purchase at the gate with cash or credit. A small convenience fee will be added for the use of credit.
Discounted motel rooms will be available for Pirate Fest fans at Baymont by Wyndham in Harriman by calling 865-882-5340.
