From the Organizer
NOLA Pyrate Week - THE Pyratical celebration of history, culture & community in Louisiana. 10 days of swashbuckling, art, music, food, events and general camaraderie among the Pyrates of Louisiana – past & present – and their mates from around the globe! History & culture are a focus with visits to important & interesting sites nearby. It's not all frivolity - we also help out in the community where we're able - Pyrate History Days at local schools & libraries, visiting Seniors, walking dogs, helping local charities and other benevolent/volunteer efforts. This is NOT a "festival", it's a GATHERING o' like minded folks who like to experience real history & culture in the places it actually happened. NOLA Pyrate Week happens every spring at about the same time...last weekend o' March to the second weekend o' April - from New Orleans, to the Prairie & the Bayous o' South Louisiana! (Ye can often find us relaxing at Pirates Alley Café between adventures)
