For over 300 years, people of all ages have searched for Captain Kidd's treasure. On Sunday, June 11th, 2017,  join Captain Kidd and his crew as they sail into Milford Harbor, 'kidnap' Mayor Blake and "take over" downtown Milford.  Come dressed as a pirate and be a part of Connecticut's best and largest scavenger hunt!

Visit the Milford Public Library throughout the week of 6/5 for pirate activities!

This event is presented by the Downtown Milford Business Association and annually sponsored by 7 Seas Restaurant. On Sunday, June 11th, Treasure hunt stops await visiting mateys - solve the clue that matches the stop, collect your booty and get your map stamped for a chance to win a treasure chest of prizes.

Special ongoing thanks to Milford Lisman Landing, Paige Miglio and Walter Micks for use of the 'Oz.'

No streets are closed off.  There is curbside parking throughout downtown. If you arrive early enough, parking is plentiful behind the courthouse/Parsons Government Center. Behind the Library is often a good bet and many of the bank and church lots will be empty by noon.

Participants will pick a downtown treasure map and a booty bag at Lisman Landing or by the Gazebo on the Green; follow the clues listed on the map and fill up your booty bags with treasures galore at the participating Pirate Stops. Here's a clue...Only the places displaying Pirate Flags will have the booty you seek! 

Be sure to stop by the Gazebo on the Green to listen to live, local bands, and take a gander for more crew members. Put on your best pirate garb and join Cap'n Kidd and his motley crew for fabulous pirate parade.
