Mark your calendars (if they aren’t already!). On April 13-15, the Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo Pavilion will host the Grand Isle Blessing of the Fleet and Fair.


If you haven’t been to a Blessing of the Fleet event, you’ll be in for an absolute treat if you decide to come out to this family-friendly extravaganza! The weekend will be action-packed, full of music, food and drink, kids’ rides, carnival games, crafts… and of course, the boat blessing event.


“So, when does the fun start?”

The whole thing will kick off on Friday, April 13 with the opening ceremony at the pavilion with DJ Capt. P. There will also be auction items and music by the Gordon Bradberry Band on the opening night.


“When is the actual blessing of the fleet?”

Saturday will commence with the fair opening at 11AM. The boat blessing along with a rope throwing contest will be from 1pm to 3pm. There will be a full evening of music, along with an auction of pageant crowns and an entertaining shrimp boat decorating contest.

“What events are happening on the final day?”

The fair opens once again at 11am with DJ Capt. P. A kids crab race will be held from 1pm to 2pm. Please remember to bring your own crabs. There will be music by Waylon Thibodaux until 6pm.


“What is the price to ride the rides?”

A daily wrist band will cost $20. If you want to attend throughout the whole weekend, you can pay $50 for an all-weekend bracelet which will provide you a bit of break on the price.

There is no fee to get into the fair.
