NO RATINGS
http://www.norcalpiratefestival.com/

A few years back we were fo a few months the largest gathering of pirates in the world.  Actually this show is a lot like maker faire. Same steampunks, different costumes.  Most modern 'pirates' make their own swag these days.

Both Maker faire and Pirate festival have their roots in the old Renaissance faire that was held in Marin.  Burning man also came out of this so there is a lot of cross polination going on at these events.
