Traditionally scheduled on the Saturday nearest to Talk Like A Pirate Day (September 19th), the Pirate Palooza™ Pubcrawl is the ultimate inland meeting of pirates, buccaneers, rascals, rogues, scoundrels, ruffians and scalawags this side of the bounding main. It’s an invasion, a sack, a pub crawl and a great way to meet other enthusiasts of the piratical arts ending in a fantastic pub sing starring some of the most popular Renfest bands of our time! Join Captain Drew and his crew as they wend their way through the ale houses of downtown Decatarrr on their way to the big Palooza at the end of the night. Be prepared for rollicking sea chanties, soaring ballads and bawdy pub songs delivered by the most skilled musicians in all the land. For details of the pubcrawl stops and the rest of the event please check . As in past years, the 2012 Palooza will be divided into two distinct chapters: the pubcrawl and the concert. The Pirate Palooza™ Pubcrawl begins at 1:30pm and lasts until 6:30pm. The Pirate Palooza™ PubSing begins at 7:00pm and lasts until 11:00pm, if not later! Thar will be a map of the pubcrawl course on the Pirate Palooza™ site and the final stop be at the Harbour Bar at 129 Church Street!

History of the Pubcrawl dreamed of by Captain Drew, greatly and fabulously abetted, planned and engineered by Fiona Leonard, Geoffrey Brown and Tracy Wilson, the very first Pirate Palooza™ Pubcrawl debuted in 2005 where it netted round about 100 patrons, both pirate and lubbers. It featured music by a great gaggle of extremely popular Renaissance Festival music groups and much ale, wine, grog and port were consumed by the attendees. Many grand hangovers were born that night and the event became legend in short order.
