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.
