Blackbeard Festival

7 posts in this topic

I'm seeking info regarding the Blackbeard Festival in Hampton. I'm fairly new to all this so any info provided would be great!

  • Are 2016 dates set yet?
  • Is there a good hotel within walking distance of the festivities?

Thanks!

Ahoy Calicojack -

A splendid affair indeed. Starts Fiday night with the ball and runs through Saturday and Sunday.

If you book in the Crowne Plaza Hampton Marina it's a one stop anchorage - hotel/ball/parking/fireworks and the festival within easy walk.

I haven't seen any date for 2016 but check Hampton Parks and Recreation (757-727-8311)after new year, they're the current organizers of the festival and tickets are ordered through them. Think end of May for the weekend. If I recall the tickets went on sale middle of March this year.
