35th Annual Biloxi Seafood Festival

In 1977, St. Paul's Seafood Festival began as a charity fund-raising event. Now the fundraiser festival is an annual tradition drawing thousands of visitors yearly. The Blessing of the Fleet/Fais Do-Do is a much-loved Biloxi tradition featuring continuous live entertainment, hundreds of craft vendors, local artisans, and the best seafood in the entire world! The celebration continues Sunday with the ceremonial wreath dropping, with shrimp boats and recreational boats decorated and parading in front of the Biloxi Small Craft Harbor to receive blessings for a safe and bountiful season! Join in the FUN as music blares from boat radios, boats parade by and wave to spectators with the attitude - Eat, Drink, and Be Merry!

"Saints & Shrimp" Southern Style is a weekend featuring two long time traditional festivals and a boat parade! St. Paul's Seafood Festival offers visitors freshly cooked food - mainly GREAT Seafood, but Asian cuisine, hamburgers, BBQ, hot dogs and more are available. Live music, carnival rides, and arts, & crafts round out the event, making this a family friendly event. The Blessing of the Fleet and Fais Do Do (Street Party) offers visitors an arts &  crafts fair along with a boat parade where lavishly decorated boats parade for the opening of the shrimping season.
