There are several ways you can help make sure the Kentucky Pirate Festival is a fun and successful event!

  • The easiest way to help is simply to buy your tickets in advance. This gives us more money to work with before the Festival. Thanks to you, our larger budget can be used for more entertainment, decorations, and advertising that will make the Festival better!
  • Another easy way to help is to spread the word about the Festival. Talk to your friends and co-workers about it, share the Facebook event and invite people to it, and follow our Facebook page.
  • If you want to be more actively involved, become a volunteer! There are a number of people we need help from before and during the Festival. Between now and February we need carpenters and artists to make and decorate, outgoing people to hand out flyers and hang posters, writers to make blog posts on this website, and more!  During the Festival we need ticket takers, intimidating security people, stage managers, and other jobs we probably haven’t even thought of yet. Download our volunteer application to get started on your life of piracy.
  • Sponsor the Festival. If you are a business owner, sponsor us and we can supply your business with advertising to all the Kentucky pirates! There are a number of services we’ll need before the Festival (printing in particular), so we can also trade advertising for services. The letter detailing all the standard levels of sponsorship can be downloaded here: kypf-sponsorship-letter. Show Kentucky how cool your business is by sponsoring the Kentucky Pirate Festival! Among other things, your company logo and a link to your website will appear in the right column of every page of this website, and we’ll promote you at the event and on our social media.
