Pirate festivals

I've just learned about a truly fascinating expression of maritime culture: the Northern California Pirate Festival. And it's not the only one; helps you "Find Your Place to Plunder!"

Unfortunately I haven't yet made it to a pirate festival, but it sounds like a great way to truly explore the ways that historical pirates are imagined in popular culture (while enjoying good food and music!) Is it historical reenactment? Living history? Does it matter?
