Good Queen Bess knew a good thing when she saw it. Give out a few Letters of Marque and viola! a ready-made navy to spank those dastardly Spanish, protect England's waters, and raise some sorely needed funds for the royal coffers. Come and enjoy a day of reveling at our faire with legally sanctioned pillaging, swashbuckling and adventuring. Shop at our faire for the finest booty from the seas, eat exotic foods and drink the finest ales. Many demonstrations of the sea faring life, as well as talented performers, and Sea Chanties to delight your senses.

Became the Fresno Pirate Festival.
