This year makes twenty-one years of pirate parties in Telluride. Back when we first dressed up like pirates and went to see the new “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie at The Nugget Theater in 2003. We had so much fun!

The crew has since kept it going by raising money for several community organizations. It now has become one of the GoHawkeye foundations biggest fundraisers of the year. So, come out, meet Brian, and party like a pirate! Bid on some booty in the silent auction and dance to some great live music.
