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 have been awarded to students as college scholarships.

Held on the Corpus Christi Bayfront each spring, this festival provides a variety of events including a ProRodeo, a carnival, and two parades. More than 120,000 attendees line the streets each year 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.
