Put-in-Bay Pyrate Fest

Admission to the Put-In-Bay Pyrate Festival is free.

Welcome to the Put-In-Bay Pyrate Festival. The Pyrate King returns to find his stolen treasure. The fest opens Friday with “Booms over the Bay.” Don’t miss the annual Cardboard Boat Regatta where participants paddle their vessels around the downtown harbor. There’s also a kids costume contest and an adult costume contest. Saturday and Sunday offers Pyrate Marketplace, Faire Wynds Circus, historic displays on cooking, medicine, weapons, and navigation. More than 50 re-enactors in pyrate gear will be downtown for photo ops, discussing tactics, and helping you choose a “pyrate name”.
