The Northern California Pirate Festival is the largest pirate event in the United States. The annual fest is equal parts Mardi Gras, state fair, living history, and Pegged-leg eye-patch-wearin’ fan fest that appeals to children and adults alike. With four stages of continuous entertainment, rows of nautically inspired handcrafts, gourmet foods, micro-brewed beers, and ship to shore canon battles, visitors will encounter proper British Naval Officers to alluring mythical mermaids throughout the streets. Our mission is to entertain and engage any one with a love of pirates and all are encouraged to join in the fun by donning a costume. New this year is the Adults only (18 and over) night event called the "Buccaneers Bash!" Keep a weather eye for information regarding this piratical event!
