Since 1938, the Buccaneer Commission, a non-profit organization has annually staged the Buccaneer Days festival in Corpus Christi, Texas in support of bringing entertaining, educational and cultural events to the Coastal Bend. Beginning in 1996, proceeds from Buc Days has been awarded to students as college scholarships.

Held on the Corpus Christi Bayfront in the Spring, this culturally diverse event grabs the attention of South Texas.  It has something for everyone, including a Rodeo, a Carnival, and two Parades.  Over 120,000 attendees line the streets each year awaiting the Buc Days Pirate Queens and Buc Days King scholarship contestants on our Buc Days float at the Buc Days Illuminated Night Parade.

The Buccaneer Commission’s mission is promoting tradition and community pride in the Coastal Bend by producing exceptional family entertainment that results in educational scholarships.

The Buccaneer Commission through its annual events raises funds to support education in the Coastal Bend. To date the Commission has awarded over $1 million in scholarships and grants.
