About Buccaneer Days

In 1939, Esquimalt began holdin' a May Queen celebration. This evolved into Esquimalt Days n' eventually, in 1966, became Buccaneer Days. The town turned out in naval n' pirate attire, vying fer prizes fer the best costume. The crew o' Esquimalt were also awakened at a mighty early hour by a loudspeaker mounted atop a van calling “Wakey, Wakey!”


Buccaneer Days festivities 'ave always been well attended, wit ov'r 20 community organizations takin' part, which allows our community t' work n' play together, 'ave a great time, 'n instill a feelin' o' accomplishment 'n pride in our community.
