90th Annual Blessing of the Fleet and Fais Do-Do


2019-05-29

Celebrate our culture, our heritage, our legacy. You're invited to the Biloxi Blessing of the Fleet as we honor this beloved tradition.

The Point Cadet Plaza is the site of the festival, Fais-Do-Do, a French term loosely translated as street dance. The event runs from 10 am to 9 pm, and will feature more than 70 arts and craft and food booths, a children’s area, and live entertainment throughout the day.
The actual Blessing of the Fleet takes place in the Biloxi channel at 2pm on Sunday, June 2 with the dropping of a wreath in memory of deceased fishermen and seafood industry workers. Brightly decorated boats will be in a procession that will stretch from the Biloxi Lighthouse eastward to the Golden Nugget.
