Blessing of the Fleet – Tilghman Island

April 10 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Blessing of the Fleet ceremony is an age old tradition typically held when boats are preparing for the opening of the season.  Local watermen will bring their boats to the harbor, and local clergy will gather together with the watermen’s community to pray for a blessing of safety and prosperity for the new season, and for all those who pass through the waters of the Bay Hundred region. Several guest speakers will share their stories and the Talbot Watermen’s Association will honor Jimmy Ridgeway and Guy Ellis for their service with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary.
3 p.m. at Dogwood Harbor
