Tis More Fun To Be a Pirate

5th Annual Pirate Festival & Pirate Beer Fest

Join us for a day full of Pirate festivities for both families and an Ages 21+ only Craft Beer Tasting. We have activities and entertainment for everyone. There will be amazing food and period-themed crafts for purchase.

Pirates will be everywhere. Mingle with Commodores, Captains, Scallywags and a shipload of Capt. Jack Sparrows.

Family-Friendly Pirate Fest

Enjoy our Pirate Festival where families can experience family-friendly entertainment including a Mermaid/Mermen Pod with some of the most attractive sirens of the sea that have come aground as they interact with children and adults alike. Bring your camera to capture their aquatic glamour and mythical beauty before they head back to sea.

Kids games, including a Pirate Treasure Hunt will fill the day with fun activities to keep the kids busy.

At the PIRATE ACADEMY, you can learn How to Talk Like a Pirate, How to Dress like a Pirate, and hear about Real Pirates in the Age of Piracy!

Be swept up by our Storytellers, be amazed by the Jugglers, and be delighted with talented musicians as they perform for your enjoyment on our Family Stage.

Pirate Beer Fest – for our guests 21+ years old

For the older pirates (21+) we will have Craft Brews from local breweries for tasting. Enjoy the best craft brews in Southern California. Discover new and unique flavors or stick to your favorite best-sellers. Within our Beer Garden there will be two incredibly talented live bands playing Pirate Rock, as well as Pirate Games just for adults.

And there will be Pirate Games just for the Adults.

Live Bands

Kapt. Kula & Dangerous Diane

What’s a Pirate Party without Sea Shanties? Kapt. Kula and Dangerous Diane have entertained at Disney events to celebrate the releases of Pirates of the Caribbean and now bring their exciting Pirate music to our Festival. They will be performing on stage in the Pirate Festival area, as well as Roaming thru the Festival to bring lively Shanties, Sea Songs and Nautical Novelty tunes to our guests. Feel free to sing-a-long.

Tommy Peacock Band

Tommy Peacock band is a favorite at local Pirate Events – we love them and know you will too. They promise to “bring the party to the Pirates”, playing classic covers as well as hits from all decades – Billy Idol/Rolling Stones/Tom Petty/Sublime, much more. High level energy, high level entertainment.

The Black Stripes

@theblackstripesrock is one of LA’s most popular Alternative Rock Bands performing songs you can sing along with, dance to or just enjoy the high energy of Metallica, Billy Idol, Blink 182, and some original songs. We are so excited to bring them onto our Main Stage to entertain you. Both of these bands are worth the price of the tickets alone! You will ROCK!
