Step back in time to the days when Blackbeard and his crew of scalawags called Bath home as pirates once again walk the streets of Historic Bath on May 13, 2023. The day’s events hold much history and promise great fun as The Loose Cannon Crew returns to Bath Fest and occupies Bonner’s Point with hands on history interpreting The Golden Age of Piracy. From 10:00 am to 3:00 pm arts meets history at Bath Fest. Arts and craft vendors selling their original works line the streets while musical performances take the stage at the Bonner House. Visitors to Bath Fest on September 18, 2021 were so impressed with the Pitt Community College Symphony Orchestra, they will return for a performance in May playing at 12:00. Enjoy music from traditional to symphonic to high energy bluegrass/country as The Still Shakers take the Bonner House stage at 11:00am. From 2:00pm to 3:00pm, Double Portion closes out Bath Fest with Southern gospel music. Art from Bath Elementary School students will be on display and civic groups will sell food.
