Take a step back in time at the Gananoque Pirate Festival. Visit the Pirate Village with live music, tarot card readers, wood carvers, a blacksmith, potters, a tall ship manned with pirates, cannons and guns! KIDS ZONE and of course no Pirate Festival would be complete without the notorious Captain Jack! We would never forget the big kids so come out and test your skills on the tippy ladder, cool off on the giant water slide or listen to great music on the waterfront mainstage.
