Blessing of the Fleet Fremantle

Festivals and Celebrations

Watch the pageantry and splendour of the Blessing of the Fleet as this annual procession makes its way from Saint Patrick’s Basilica to Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour, concluding in a spectacular fireworks display at 8pm.

The Blessing of the Fleet is a tradition that began centuries ago in Mediterranean fishing communities to ensure a safe and bountiful fishing season. First celebrated in Western Australia by an Italian migrant fisherman, the historical port of Fremantle celebrates its 71st anniversary this year.
