61st Annual Blessing of the Fleet

May 10 | 4-5:30PM

Destin Fishing Fleet Marina


As a community foundation and for 61 years, the annual Blessing of the Destin Fishing Fleet takes place in the Destin harbor on Ascension Day (Thursday, May 10th). On this day, local pastors gather to bless charter fishing boats and others who earn their living from the sea, for safe passage and bountiful catches. Today, the Blessing of the Fleet has grown along with the community and its businesses becoming a week-long celebration starting Sunday, May 6th through Thursday, May 10th. Included in this annual event is also the Blessing of the Marketplace taking place on Wednesday, May 9th. This year, the overall event celebrates it's 15th year!
