Embrace your inner buccaneer this Father’s Day Weekend and set sail for the biggest playground for all things pirate at the annual Northern California Pirate Festival in Vallejo’s Waterfront Park.

It’s the largest pirate event in the United States.

10th Annual Northern California Pirate Festival
Saturday-Sunday, June 18-19, 2016 | 10 am to 6 pm
Vallejo Waterfront, 298 Mare Island Way
$10 Adults

Festival Map | Saturday schedule | Sunday schedule

There’s canon firings at Noon each day and ship-to-shore battles at 2pm.

Don your pirate garb and join hundreds of costumed actors, crafters and musicians at this annual fest which is equal parts Mardi Gras, state fair, living history, and pegged-leg eye-patch-wearin’ fan fest that appeals to children and adults alike.

With four stages of continuous entertainment, rows of nautically inspired handcrafts, gourmet foods, micro-brewed beers, and ship-to-shore canon battles, visitors will encounter proper British Naval Officers and alluring mythical mermaids.
