Come to Ocracoke Island for a Pirate Halloween! The Ocracoke Pirate Jamboree is an annual and multiple-day event that is highlighted by a family-friendly Pirate Encampment by Blackbeard's Pirate Crew on Ocracoke Island, and an ensuing world of fun on the southern Outer Banks.

During this festival that coincides perfectly with the cool fall weather and spooky Halloween season, visitors can learn all about what it was like to live in a bustling pirate community thanks to the historically-accurate pirate encampment as well as a reenactment of the infamous pirate Blackbeard’s last battle off the coast of Ocracoke Island. During the event, visitors are encouraged to dress up in their best pirate gear to fit in with the crowds, and can partake in a wide range of activities and demonstrations which includes a Scallywag School that’s just for kids, Strolling Minstrels, Sword Fights, Black Powder Demonstrations, Beer Gardens, The Pirate Bazaar, and plenty of other surprises and pirate activities.  With a production of Blackbeard’s last stand at the edge of Silver Lake Harbor, this event effortlessly combines history with miles of pirate-themed fun. An ideal event for pirate lovers of all ages, this annual festival has quickly become one of the most beloved weekends on undeniably pirate-friendly Ocracoke Island.

It was 1978 when Eddie and Lou Miller first opened Miller’s Seafood and Steakhouse. As a teenager, their son Brian spent his summers working in the restaurant, getting familiar with the family business. After college, Brian and his wife Beth came back to Kill Devil Hills and began working together at Miller’s. Brian and Beth officially purchased the restaurant from Eddie and Lou in 2007. A few years later they opened American Pie together, and both restaurants now carry on the Miller family tradition of quality, excellence and hospitality.


“I learned everything about the restaurant business from my parents,” Miller says. “They ran the business together for all those years, and now my wife and I are doing the same. “Throughout the summer, we’re feeding around 2,000 people a day in our two restaurants. It’s a challenge we embrace every season, and we get a lot of fulfillment from making it all work.”


The Millers focus on two main specialties: high quality foods and unparalleled service. Seafood at Miller’s is fresh and locally caught, and they serve high-quality Angus beef, fresh pastas and homemade desserts. At American Pie, guests enjoy hand-tossed pizzas and homemade ice cream.


“We put a lot of time and effort into ensuring the products we bring in are top-notch,” Miller says. “Our customers know that when they visit our restaurants, they’ll be getting the quality and consistency they’ve come to know and love.”
