Pirate Faires, Festivals & Invasions

View Faires for This Weekend or By State | Pirates | Fairies | Dickens | Highland Games

Aaaaarrrrrr! Pirate Faires & Pirate Festivals combine Living History and Nautical History with a good dose of Fantasy. You'll find lots of Captains, not so many swabs. Events on water often have tall ships and cannon. There have always been a few pirates at any given Ren-Faire (Sir Francis Drake for example), but following the immense success of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, pirates appeared everywhere. It seems improbable that a rapacious scourge of scurvy-bent, lice-ridden swabs could become family-fun, but somehow Pirates have become rehabilitated. To discover why, break out your eyepatch, cutlass and peg-leg and ship out for some grog. If there isn't a Pirate Faire near you, many Ren-Faires have pirate-themed weekends.
