The official New England Pirate Faire press release

For immediate release

Pastimes Entertainment is proud to announce the return of the New England Pirate Faire, the region’s original pirate-themed interactive theatrical event, and this year we’re expanding to two weekends of family-friendly fun and thrills.

On June 19, 20, 26, and 27 Gloucester’s Stage Fort Park will be transformed into “Pirate Island” for the story of “Felicity Dane and the Pirate Treasure.” This light-hearted adventure pits the spunky young heroine of the title against four of history’s most notorious pirates – Edward “Blackbeard” Teach, Anne Bonney, and the Barbarossa Brothers – in a race for lost pirate booty.

The New England Pirate Faire features a daylong storyline full of action and comedy, interactive scenes that make the audience part of the show, food and refreshments, and the “Tortuga Marketplace,” where guests may purchase handcrafted wares ranging from clothing to jewelry to their very own pirate cutlass – all in a unique seaside setting that sets the perfect stage!

Pastimes is pleased to announce its lineup of variety performers for the 2010 New England Pirate Faire. Old favorites Rosalita's Puppets and the Bawdy Buccaneers are back, as is the death-defying world-renowned Wonderfool and the balloon artistry of Royal Sorell. We also welcome this year two new performers: the musical stylings of Barnacle, and a brand-new action comedy show that can only be called: "Pirate Vs. Ninja"!

The New England Pirate Faire runs from 10 AM to 5 PM each day, rain or shine. Admission is $12 for adults; $10 for senior citizens, students, and military personnel (positive ID required!); and $8 for children age 12 and under.

The city of Gloucester is providing on-site premium parking at Stage Fort Park for $15 per car, and there is free streetside parking available within walking distance.
