We are an immersion-style event that is Pirate themed! Set sail with us and take a side trip from your mundane life to experience a weekend of shenanigans, ships, fun, games and fire for grownups - or at least those who are grownup on the outside... There is something for everyone here at Tortuga, if wenching, partying and playing be yer fancy, we feature eight themed Parties each evening who are presenting games, music, fire shows, and other entertainment. If you come ashore full of piss and vinegar and ready to fight, then come join the Pirate Olympic Games where you can wrestle another pirate to the ground (with or without mud) or go for the gold in a boffer tournament. Vote for your favorite party hosts to win King and Queen of the Pirates!! We are creating a themed community of pirates and gypsies for a few days so we can leave the mundane world behind. This means dressing in pirate or gypsy garb for the duration of the event, leaving cars in the parking lot, minimal use of technology like phones, perhaps even taking on a pirate / gypsy persona or name for the duration of the event. You might set up a themed or period encampment or eat and drink themed or period food. Immersion is what makes us different from a renaissance faire type event. You won't see tourists walking around in khaki shorts and flip flops - you will see a fantasy pirate and gypsy community created and maintained for a weekend complete with its own currency and government.
Tortuga is an event for people age 18 and over.
