Boat Blessing

The Blessing of the Fleet is a long-standing tradition in Acadia and the Festival acadien de Caraquet has been carrying on that tradition since its very beginnings. Thanks to the participation of many captains, a parade of boats of every colour adds a bright touch to beautiful Caraquet Bay in a moving tribute to fishermen lost at sea. Do you own a boat? Register for this special event. The activity is organized in partnership with Coop de Caraquet, the Caisse populaire Acadie and the Northumberland Dairy Cooperative. Prizes for the best decorated boats will be awarded by the Caraquet Port Committee.
