4th Annual PIRATES BALL
The 4th Annual Pirates Ball will be held on Friday July 13th, directly behind the Cape Cod Maritime Museum, under a Big Tent, and in the new Climb Aboard! Park & Preservation Boat Shed on beautiful Hyannis Harbor.

Enjoy dancing under a tent overlooking the Hyannis waterfront, with live entertainment from The Dune Billy Allstars. A raw bar of locally fresh shellfish at the museum’s new outdoor Climb Aboard! Park, with festive hors d’oeuvres and the Pirates Ball signature rum drink—the Scurvy Cure.

More About Cape Cod Maritime Museum
Cape Cod Maritime Museum is on a spectacular piece of land right on Barnstable Harbor. It features exhibits on boat building, shipwrecks and maritime artifacts. On display is the hull of the Sparrow-Hawk, which sank off Cape Cod in 1626, bringing settlers to the new colony.
The museum partners with local schools to promote and share the maritime experience. The featured exhibits change regularly. Information about the schedule is on the museum's informative website. It offers classes in boat design, half-model making, ship in a bottle making and boat building.
The museum offers sailboat rides on the Sarah, the museum-built replica of the 1886 Crosby catboat, for reasonable single and family rates for a one-and-a-half-hour sail. The Sarah is slipped right at the museum site on the harbor.
Supporting the museum through membership starts at $35. The gift shop is small but packed with interesting souvenirs, maritime curios and books.
