Lake Chelan Pirate Fest Carnival


The Lake Chelan Pirate Fest in cooperation with the Lake Chelan Tourist Center hosted a Pirate Carnival, August 17-20, as an addition to annual Summer Pirate Fest events. The  valley is lucky to have so many activities for community members of all ages to enjoy, not least among them the Lake Chelan Pirate Fest’s Pirate Carnival. The carnival was held at Leffler Field in Manson, and featured traditional carnival rides and fair treats provided by Paradise Amusements, and a rousing open to the event complete with the illustrious singing of the Lake Chelan Patriotic Singers and appearance of Mayor Bob Goedde. The First Annual Lake Chelan Pirate Fest was held in 2012, a celebration some 200 years after the legend that Pirates first arrived in Lake Chelan. The Lake Chelan Tourist Center, a Washington non-profit, produces these special events annually to benefit student programs and provide community events, among this years’ the 4th of July Pirate Fun Run, Pirate Boat Cruise, Annual Halloween Photos as part of Lake Chelan Halloween, as well as Christmas in Washington’s Christmas Concert Series, performance by guest musician Geoffrey Castle’s Celtic Christmas, A Visit With Santa, and Reindeer Day. Producing “family friendly events for locals and tourists alike” is a goal stated by Brad Snow of the Lake Chelan Tourist Center. The annual Summer Pirate Event Series will be expanding in 2024 with an additional event at Chelan County Fairgrounds. Please see for more updates and Lake Chelan Pirate Fest activity event schedules.
