A non profit group of pirates supporting Southwest Louisiana through re-enactments and more!

We stage re-enactments at schools, conventions and more. Interested parties should contact the Re-enactment Chairman Keith Jagneaux, - or Mark Lavergne,  and they put the word out to the other Buccaneers.
How we participate is dictated by the situation. When we “raid” a school we might read to the younger ones or we might be invited to eat lunch in their cafeteria with the students. Of course an appearance at 9PM at a casino would have a different approach.

We are visible at area festivals like Contraband Days, passing out beads, doubloons and other pirate goodies. Staging mini parades and street dances is part of the fun. We hope to see you and your family soon!

The Contraband Days Festival Changes Its Name
On International Talk Like a Pirate Day 2017
LAKE CHARLES, La. (September 19, 2017)
For six decades, the Contraband Days Festival in Lake Charles has brought pirates, carnival rides, music, traditions and merriment along the lakefront. However, the festival is entering into a new era, embracing all that is “Louisiana” along with the folklore and beauty that surrounds the Lake Charles area. With its new focus on Louisiana culture, it is fitting that on International Talk Like a Pirate Day, the festival is changing its name to become the Louisiana Pirate Festival.
“The board felt that this name change would be a true reflection of the shift that is taking place with the festival itself. We have incredible food, music and artists in Louisiana, and everyone sees this as an opportunity to celebrate the best of who we are as a people and culture. Right on the shores of Lake Charles, the Louisiana Pirate Festival will bring a more statewide appeal, moving past the 60th anniversary. It’s time for something new and different,” said Russ Grantham, president of the Louisiana Pirate Festival.
The festival’s website is currently under construction, and there will be an announcement later for the website reveal that will showcase the spirit of the Louisiana Pirate Festival.
