AHOY all you Buccaneers!!
May 12–14 are the 2023 dates for Buccaneer Days: a non-profit/community groups fundraising event!
A fun community/family event with something for all ages. The Buccaneer Days Committee is working with Esquimalt Parks and Recreation and West Coast Amusements to make this years Buccaneer Days a fun, filled event to fill the hearts of all attendees.
A little history: in 1939, Esquimalt began holding a May Queen celebration. This evolved into Esquimalt Days and eventually, in 1966, became Buccaneer Days. The town turned out in naval and pirate attire, vying for prizes for the best costume. The citizens of Esquimalt were also awakened at a very early hour by a loudspeaker mounted atop a van calling “Wakey, Wakey!” Buccaneer Days festivities have always been well attended, with over 20 community organizations taking part, which allows our community to work and play together, have a great time, and instill a feeling of accomplishment and pride in our community.
