From the last weekend o’ March through the first weekend o’ April every
year, from New Orleans to the Bayous, the citizens of Louisiana celebrate NOLA Pyrate Week – 10 days
o’ swashbuckling, history, food, drink, music, art, events and general camaraderie among
the Pyrates of Louisiana – past & present – and their mates from
around the globe! Not a “festival”, but a gathering o’ Pyrates, Privateers & llike minded folk from ports far & wide!Hoisted annually since 2009 by Capt. John Swallow, QM Seika Hellbound (and our scurrilous crew) we honour the living and the dead by giving back to the city they loved!As Pyrates have always done here, we share the hospitality but also endeavor to give back to the communities we travel. We’ve volunteered and helped rebuild homes, cleaned Bayous, walked shelter dogs, entertained Seniors and educated Students…and we expect ye to contribute however yer able! There is always someone we can help out and we always do whate’er we’re able to restore & preserve the waters & wetlands!Pass a good time in the city saved by Pyrates, home o’ the brothers Laffite and their associates; birthplace o’ Renato Beluche, burial place o’ Dominique You, designed/built by Barthelemy Lafon… Learn true Pyrate history – and the local history it affects to this day – from Pyrates actually related to many o’ those legends! Enjoy the unique culture o’ the region as we gather and wander The City o’ New Orleans, The Town o’ Jean Lafitte (Barataria), the Bayous o’ Terrebonne Parish, the Prairies o’ Evangeline Parish…and any other adventure we may find!This is a true Pyrate gathering – casual, thoroughly enjoyable, experiencing places and meeting folks who exemplify life in Louisiana – no cheesy tourist traps, krappy karaoke or made-up-for-tourists mis-information!Past events have included visits to various historic cemeteries, nature preserves, education day, video shoots, wetland tours, merchant/artisan markets, museums, temples, tours in historic boats…and many other adventures (some so secret we can only whisper the details in person).O’ course all manner o’ great food and beverage are always involved – and many new mates to meet along the way!
