What is Pirate Jam?

The first Pirate Jam in early summer of 2020, was the brainchild of PCAC President Angie Propst and Chris Daniels of the Southern Hellcats.
It was created in response to the closing of all performance venues and mandatory social distancing because of Covid 19.

This free concert could only be attended by water. People came in their boats, kayaks, paddle boards, canoes and even inflatables and were able to enjoy great music while keeping distant from each other.

The bands were based on the land of a waterfront home at “Blackbeard’s Point.” in Oriental. (Also known at Teaches Point or Dewey Point)

The concert was so popular, PCAC brought it back in Sept. of the same year and added incentivised Pirate Jam burgees (flags) that attendees could get for free by saving up $100 worth of receipts from sponsors businesses. This stimulated the local economy and created cherished collectables.

2022 marks the 4th Pirate Jam and the 3rd collectible burgee design. (Raindate: Sun., Sept. 4)
