Call it a “pirate’s fair”, call it a pirate-themed Renaissance Festival, call it a roaring good time! Voted the Best Annual Waterfront Event in the Northern Bay in 2014 by the readers of Chesapeake Bay Magazine, this family-friendly event has a little something for everyone: a pirate encampment, live entertainment, merchants and craftsmen selling their booty, music, activities for the lads and lasses, offshore water highlights, a 5K race, RUM! and more. Of course, one of the favorite activities is the Decorated Dinghy Contest and Poker Run where homemade floating crafts are put to the test by their talented captains. There will even be a Buccaneer’s Ball with a live auction, entertainment and pirate mischief – no doubloons needed for entrance!
