Ahoy Pirates!

At our inaugural Pirate Fest in 2015 the band ‘o pirates run amok without a cap’n at the helm.  To keep the pirates in shape, we now elect a “Pirate King”.

Since 2016, we have had 4 amazing Pirate Kings. See their mug shots, eer I mean headshots in our Hall o’ Fame below…

Tis time t’ start the battle anew for who shall be the King at the 2022 Pirate Fest.  Gather pirates – all scallywags under all sails may compete for the grand title o’ “Pirate King”, Cap’n of the Northglenn Pirate Fest.

The contest will be made up o’ tasks t’ be completed between registering for your candidacy and t’ Pirate Ball on September 16, 2022.

Each task will be worth points.  See the task list and plan ahead t’ blow your competition out o’ t’ water!

Pirate King Information

Candidates for King are encouraged to recruit a crew to support their efforts and t’ help ya “campaign”! Some tasks will need creativity, some will require time and all will require Pirate wits and spirit.

Now “King” is the title we are awarding the winner but by no means does the King have to be a “he”! Anne showed us that a lady makes a fine Cap’n and we expect more cunning Pirate Women t’ compete.
