The Spirit of Salem
Salem is known the world over for the tragedy of 1692. But Salem is rich with other stories, innovations, and adventures. The Spirit of Salem gets at the heart of what makes Salem the artistic and entrepreneurial place it is. If you look around the city today and see cultural and community life you admire, the film will introduce you to the characters who helped instill those values into the city—spirits who still walk our streets, if you have the eyes to see them! A collaboration with CinemaSalem.

Witch | Hunter
It's 1692. In the woods and dark interiors of Pioneer Village "the Devil hath been raised amongst us". Would you join the witch-hunt to protect yourself? "Witch | Hunters" gathered clues from the poetry and ritual of an herbalist, a minister, an afflicted girl with spectral sight and a witch-finder general. In order to exit the damnation of the village, the hunters had to gather each of the four elements—earth, air, fire and water. If able to restore the balance which had been upset by the devil's intrusion into Salem they might be allowed an escape.

Co-sponsored by Pastimes Entertainment and the Gordon College Institute for Public History
Pillage the Village has concluded for 2010. Watch here for announcements of future Pirate Fairs.
A special event for the entire family featuring a treasure hunt, period music, sword fights and more. Guests can wear pirate finery for adult and children’s costume contests or join a pirate crew while witnessing the chaos of the Salem village under ‘attack.’
Famous pirates from New England’s past, such as Captain Ned Low, “Black Sam” Bellamy and even Lynn’s Rachel Wall, the last woman hanged on Boston Common, will be on hand as visitors plot with Salem’s colonial residents to take back their town in “The Secret Heroes Meeting.” Whether watching thrilling swordplay or listening to songs of the sea from period musicians, the sights, sounds and even smells of Pioneer Village are a perfect summer outing. Take a break from hunting pirates with a picnic lunch by the sea.
With all proceeds going toward the continuing restoration of the Village, admission is $10 for adults, $8 for students, seniors and military (with ID) and $6 for children 4–12.
