PDXYAR at Maker Faire THIS Weekend!

This weekend marks the return of the Mini Maker Faire to the OMSI and you should be making plans to join us there. PDXYAR will indeed be in attendance again this year establishing a encampment, singing shanties and offering a wide range of entertainments while adding our trademark piratical flare to the occasion. Take in the video below and then see the specifics of our endeavors under that.


Guapo’s Galley:

Guapo’s Galley features ship’s cook Guapo del Negro in a living history demonstration of how food was cooked and crews were fed aboard a 17th century tall ship. Think equal parts America’s Test Kitchen and a piratical Swedish Chef. Porkins may be Captain of El Tiburon, but Guapo rules the galley!

Swashbuckling Swordplay:

Do your wee lads and lasses dare cross blades with a pirate? Bring them by the PDXYAR encampment where our weapons masters shall offer them instruction in the fine art of combat. (Worry not, all weapons are padded!)

Gunnery Display:

Visit the PDXYAR encampment for an up close look at the gunnery line. Sorry folks- no cannon firing this weekend.

Liar’s Dice:
Think you can best a pirate? Come by our tents for a rousing game of Liar’s Dice.

Join the Crew:

Sign the articles and become sworn in as an honorary member of the crew of El Tiburon. Learn the pirate code and take home your very own certificate indicating your membership in good standing. Remember mates, we sail at dawn (or, after cartoons).

Cost: $15 adults, $10 youth (3-17) & seniors (63+) (Members get $5 off all tickets)
