The Blessing of the Fleet is an annual event held every Easter Sunday. It is a very special time of the year. Not only is it the most holy Catholic time of the year, but it is also a time when families get together to enjoy the Easter holidays.
A big part of this enjoyment in the Shoalhaven area, is the Blessing of the Fleet Festival with its parade, entertainment, stalls, food, exhibitions, games rides and spectacular fireworks in the evening. The Milton Ulladulla Rotary Club have been organising this event for ten years and the men and women in Milton Ulladulla Rotary make time in their business schedule, spending hundreds of hours to make this event possible.
Milton Ulladulla Rotary is a non profitable organisation and raises money for charity, each year, they approach the community for financial help as this is their only means of raising funds necessary to run the Festival. And each year the community pulls together and very generously donates.
We truly have a wonderful community as there are so many worthwhile causes calling on funds each year and, each year, the community gives and gives. We have been truly fortunate this year to have our major sponsors back on board Shoalhaven City Council and the Milton Ulladulla Ex-Servos Club.
The financial support of all our sponsors and supporters is gratefully accepted and makes it possible for Milton Ulladulla Rotary Club to run the Festival. However, it is equally important to have our Media Partners support for without their input, we could not afford to promote the event to make it as popular as it is today.
- Ulladulla Printing Services for posters and the blessing order of service
- Radio 2ST provides extra ad time, interviews and radio coverage
- South Coast Leisure Times promote the festival through their magazine
- South Coast Promotions for website
- Shoalhaven Signature for social media and other marketing and promotions
Milton Ulladulla Rotary Club thanks all our Sponsors and we urge the community to avail themselves of the goods and services these businesses have to offer.
