Culture Connect Featured Event
Ahoy Matey! Pirates are landing on Sheffield Island, welcoming guests who visit the island and historic lighthouse on two weekends in July. Visitors who take a round-trip ferry ride to the lighthouse will encounter pirate re-enactors who will dazzle them with story telling, sea chanteys, sword fighting and cannon fire demonstrations, among other pirate-like traditions.
Pirate Weekend activities are free, but participants must purchase round-trip ferry tickets to Sheffield Island. The Norwalk Seaport Association ferry to Sheffield Island departs at 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. from the Sheffield Island dock, adjacent to the Stroffolino Bridge, at the corner of Washington and Water Streets in South Norwalk.
