The Guinness World Record™ attempt for “The Largest Gathering of Pirates”

Just last year, the Portland Pirate Fest brought the world record for “The Largest Gathering of Pirates” to Portland by gathering 1,670 pirates together.  Alas, for the record has been taken from us.  But all is not lost!  This year PDXYAR will once again be a part of the attempt to retake the record.  We need to gather 7,000 pirates together .  Come out on Sunday and be counted with us!  For more information about how you can help reclaim the record, visit the pre-registration webpage.

Meet the Crew!

Throughout both days keep a weather eye for PDXYAR crew strolling the festival, most likely with tankard in hand.  Whether you come across them at the PDXYAR Camp or in line for grog, say hello, perhaps give them a hug and ask them about how it feels to be a pirate!  There could be a shiny bit of swag in it for you (note: swag presentation not necessarily dependent on the duration, nor tightness, of the aforementioned hug).
