Crowd watching over the water of Ventura Harbor Village being blessed

Come to Ventura Harbor Village and join the annual Epiphany Celebration and Blessing of the Waters Ceremony put on by St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church. Gather dockside with the St. Demetrious congregation to watch the Blessing of the Waters outside The Greek Mediterranean Steak & Seafood restaurant. The waters are blessed to protect those who sail on it and divers vie for a cross believed to bring special blessings for the rest of the year. A celebration in the restaurant with food and music and dancing follows the ceremony.

The public is welcome at all aspects of the Epiphany Celebration!

If you are just interested in watching the Blessing of the Waters and Dive for the Cross outside, it is recommended you arrive at Ventura Harbor by 11:30 am.
