Featuring live entertainment from:

Music from a time that never was, but may still come to pass. Seattle's airship pirates return to the Swashbuckler's Ball for the first time since 2013!


Chervona returns to SwashBall for their 9th year! Experience the ultimate International Folk and dance party machine out of Portland! Combining the energy and passion of Eastern European pop, American jazz, punk, and disco with Romani folk music, Chervona brings to the game a fiery new and compelling sound.


Celtic-inspired, pint-raising music. CU3 is legendary for their energy and bravado. This will be the 7th time the band has played on the SwashBall stage!

Portland’s original pirate rockers return with a vengeance! Pirate Jenny has been sailing Portland’s five quadrants for at least two decades, in one form or another. Polish your hook and have your sack of limes ready, Pirate Jenny will be taking the Quarterdeck Stage by force!

Portland's own bringing high-energy Irish rebel songs & shanties, lively session tunes, and mournful gaelic ballads.


A SwashBall favorite, Bergamot returns with a troupe of performers and their signature sultry nautical burlesque show.


Music to plunder by! This hot Portland-based band re-invents the classic sea shanty with twists of genre and brilliant harmonies, capturing Blues, Celtic, Nordic, Latin, Calypso, Country, and even a few forced men!


The Feisty Felines are a group of beautifully dressed playful pirate cat girls. Look for their SwashBall debut on stage in The Bayou.

The Locker returns and you might even find yourself stumbling into the Powder Room or through the swampy confines of The Bayou. Can you find them all? Don’t worry, we’ll give you a map!
Dance the night away at the Quarterdeck Stage, hoist your tankard in The Locker, sip a sultry pint in The Bayou.
Custom cocktails themed especially for the evening and presented by Cruzan Rum and BG Reynolds. Piratical pints will be poured by our friends at Kells Brewing.
An expanded row of piratical merchants!
A larger area for our fabulous photo booth!
