Pillage The Village at The Mid-Michigan Renaissance Festival 2019

Pillage the Village
How about Pirates and Vikings and Wenches… OH MY… Join us land lubbers in our Tavern for a mead, visit a real life Viking Village and see their daily life. The pint sized pirates can sink a ship or talk to a mermaid. Join this mid-season scallywag shindig with both our sea weathered buccaneers and the fresh faced privateers. Let’s avoid the scurvy, and hard tack! Only the best, or worst depending on your perspective, is allowed in our village!

Mermaid MegaFest 2019 is a festival of mermaids and pirates, dedicated to the preservation of our planet’s aquatic ecosystem through public awareness, community education, and social activism.

This Year’s Festival will take place in the beautiful beach town of South Haven Michigan located on the coastline of Lake Michigan, the 14th and 15th of June 2019. We are happy to announce that we will be working with, but not replacing, South Haven’s Harborfest this year!

Shipwrecked: First Friday Downtown Monroe

Sure, there were pirates in the Caribbean, but the Great Lakes had them too! The pirates of the Great Lakes may not have had parrots on their shoulders & peg legs…but this event is all about fun & fantasy. So, dress up as your favorite character (pirate, mermaid, lighthouse, shark, etc.) and head downtown for some great maritime themed activities.

Check in at the Monroe County Museum for a printed event guide for this self guided adventure around Downtown Monroe.
