One of the aspects of the 2016 St. Augustine Pirate Gathering that we are most excited about is the way we are clustering our vendors into Pirate Ports/Regional Marketplaces. Each cluster will follow a theme that reflects the goods, the food, the booze, the beer of a specific part of the world that has historically been a stronghold for Pirates. Different Parts of the World. Different Places in Time. Click Here for Historic Ports of Pirates.
Each cluster will have unique food trucks that serve the specialty dishes of that geography.
Each cluster will have it's own Pub...specially decorated for that Port and stocked with some special drinks that reflect that part of the world. With 5 total Bars, we will have a nightly Pub Crawl.
Each cluster will have special entertainment to set the mood for that Port.
Each cluster will have an Anchor Vendor that has a style and goods befitting that Regional Marketplace. The other vendors within that cluster will be encouraged to decorate their booths to fit and give the visual impression of that Pirate Port...and the best decorated will be recognized.
