33rd Annual North Carolina Seafood Festival | Blessing of the Fleet

N C State Port Authority, Morehead City, NC, USA | (252) 726-6273

October 6, 2019 | 10:00 am-12:00 pm

All are welcome to join us for the Blessing of the Fleet on the Morehead City waterfront, Sunday of the 33rd Annual North Carolina Seafood Festival. Without the fleet of commercial fishing vessels that come from Carteret County, the availability of fresh seafood in the state and even the nation would be greatly impacted. But the sea is sometimes not so forgiving. This is why we recognize the many who have given their lives in their occupation and thank those who do it today. Join us for the emotional Blessing of the Fleet as we pray, remember, and honor the men and women of our fishing and seafood industry. The service begins at the Port along the waterfront. Free parking is available. Special thanks to WTKF 107.1 “The Talk Station,” Carteret-Craven Electric Co-op, Carteret County Fisherman’s Association, NC Ports, and Carteret County News-Times for making this special event possible.
