2013 Blessing of the Fleet & Seafood Festival

Sunday, April 28, 2013

The Annual Blessing of the Fleet & Seafood Festival began in 1987 to support and honor local shrimpers. Overlooking beautiful Charleston Harbor in the picturesque Memorial Waterfront Park, the festival has evolved into one of the most highly anticipated events of the year for seafood lovers. Participants are treated to a boat parade and ceremonial blessing of the shrimp/fishing fleet, savory seafood samplings sold by some of Mount Pleasant's favorite restaurants, live music, an arts/crafts show, shag dancing and shrimp-eating contests, and family-friendly activities. Free admission & parking! Food and event memorabilia is available for purchase. Fleet Week includes a host of other events that occur in the week leading up to the Blessing.
