Cheeky Actress posted a topic in Augusthttp://www.michiganpiratefestival.com/ Pirate Fest 2012 is scheduled for the week of August 6-12. The weekday activities will be held at Loutit District Library and throughout the downtown Grand Haven area. The weekend activities will be held at Harbor Island and the downtown Grand Haven area. We are exited for 2012! A lot of new changes are going to be happening, which will open our opportunities to make Michigan Pirate Festival in Grand Haven, MI a completely unique event! We are looking for vendors, historical encampments and living historians to set up a booth/tent space for the weekend. "Pirates Through The Ages" Our theme this year will encompass pirates throughout the ages, including pirates of fantasy and fiction. Piracy is deeply embedded into our culture and history in ways most people don't even realize! Our goal this year is to have displays of pirates and their friends/foes from fictional books & movies (Peter Pan, Pirates of the Caribbean, space pirates, etc.). The other side of the camp will display pirates and those involved with them in real history, including Vikings, Buccaneers, Golden Age Pirates, Revolutionary War, etc. Here are the groups we will be displaying: Ancient Pirates (before 1100) Medieval Pirates & Buccaneers (1100 - 1500) Golden Age Pirates (1500 - 1700) Colonial Pirates (1700 - 1850) Pre-Industrial Pirates (1850 - 1900) Steampunk (fictional alternate 1850 - 1945) Fiction/Fantasy (from books/movies)
