Fishing is a very important element of Ulladulla's economy and the annual Blessing of the Fleet is an honoured tradition, kept alive by the area's descendants of the original Italian fishing community and by the proud town in general. There are a myriad of colourful and exciting events held throughout the festival over the Easter weekend and beyond, including the Milton Ulladulla Ex Servo Club Blessing of the Fleet Parade and an afternoon of entertainment on Easter Sunday including the Scottish Tattoo and the infamous greasy pole challenge. The most significant element is the actual blessing of Ulladulla's fishing fleet. The festivities will conclude with a magnificent fireworks display over Ulladulla Harbour on Easter Sunday. Sponsored by NSW Government, Shoalhaven City Council and the Milton Ulladulla Ex Servo Club.
