Small Arms, Cannon and Period Presentations

Our crewe is renowned for our Living History Presentations, and Bird Shows all along the East Coast of the USA. The Pirates of the Dark Rose have performed at many of the premier Living History Festivals and venues: like Fort Rodman, Fort Taylor, Fort Knox, Hampton and Jamestown, Virginia. The crewe has a variety of historical presentations, an historically accurate encampment, as well as historically accurate black powder weapon and cannon. If you require a Living History presentation, we will create a custom package to fulfill your needs.


The crewe performs small arms and cannon weapons demonstrations, children’s games, the Pirate lexicon, history, superstition and stories that will keep you captivated and asking for more. Whether your Festival needs Living History presentations or is purely for Piratical entertainment, the Pirates of the Dark Rose have the experience. We have performed our bird show, artillery demonstrations and historically accurate encampments at the Blackbeard Festival in Hampton Virginia, The Fort Taylor Pirate Invasion in Key West Florida, and at Fort Rodman in New Bedford MA. We have a performance and fee schedule to fit almost any show. If you need artillery, a pirate ship, encampment or stage show for your Festival, be sure to contact us.
