Blessing of the Fleet

Sunday 6th June at 9am to 2pm
Free Entry

The Blessing of the Fleet is a tradition that began centuries ago in Mediterranean fishing communities.

The practice began as predominantly Catholic but is now practiced by Christians as a blessing from local celebrants and pastors that is meant to ensure a safe and bountiful maritime season.

Our festival features more than three days of
celebration for everyone to enjoy.
