The Pyrate Event Calendar
    Pirate Festivals have grown in popularity and number in recent years. Many Renaissance Faires and Festivals have pirate-themed weekends or events. A pirate festival will usually offer activities, crafts, and other fun stuff for children, who will cherish the memory of talking to a real pirate. Historical characters or places are featured in several pirate festivals, so you can combine your visit with a trip to the local beaches or rivers.
