The Pirate Ball will include music on the Main Stage, opening of the mermaid stage, a bardic circle, sword fighting, a dinner, a walk-around treasure map contest, crowning of the “Pirate King”, and wonderful drinks including mead, rum, and beer.
This will be a social engagement for our pirates and costumes will be encouraged (if not expected). See information below on costume information.
The 2017 Pirate Festival will be on Saturday, September 16. Check back closer to the date to find out what to expect at next year’s program.
On 2016, we did this:
The Pirate Festival from 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM. This is for kids, families and individuals. It is free entry and will include food and booth vendors plus all of the yummy pirate drinks (rum, mead, and beer) a pirate ship, a new mermaid stage plus the new compass stage plus crafts and vendors, activities including bounce houses, a historical reenactment section, sword fighting and archery demonstrations and more.
We will also have the Cardboard Boat Regatta with races starting at 1:00 PM. Pirates can gather with their boat made from cardboard, duct tape and paint to sail across Webster Lake for a chance at a prize.
The Northglenn Pirate Fest is an event by the City of Northglenn.
Be sure to play the part by dressing up for the event!
Costumes are encouraged on both Friday night and Saturday and there will be a costume contest each day. Friday night will focus on a more formal Pirate Attire (think boat captain) and Saturday will be more casual pirate attire.
The Costume Contest on Friday night will focus on the more fancy dress clothes worn to the Ball. On Saturday we will have a costume contest for the adults who dress up as well as a second division for the kids who wear pirate garb.
Ideas and links on how to dress like a pirate can be found on the Become a Pirate page. There are also several links on where to purchase pirate clothing.
