Description:

From 52nd annual Blessing of the Fleet Festival Website:

The Blessing of the Fleet is an annual festival that the Darien-McIntosh County Chamber of Commerce hosts to celebrate our biggest industry, shrimping. This three day fun-filled event consists of an art show, various food and drink vendors, arts and crafts, a YMCA 5K, children's activities, a classic car show, nightly live entertainment and a marine parade.



On Sunday we Bless our shrimpboat captains with a safe and prosperous season. Darien's Blessing of the Fleet is the largest on the East Coast! This weekend long festival is a great celebration of food, family and fun that usually draws in a crowd of 30,000+ throughout the weekend. We welcome you to come and join in our fellowship!



The cost for entry each day is $5 per person and children up to the age of 13 get in for free. Sunday is free to everyone. You may bring coolers in for a fee of $10 a piece.



For more information please contact the Chamber at (***) ***-**** or e-mail at info@********.***.
