This will be a Golden 50 years of the Blessing of the Fleet
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 shrimp boat 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!
