San Francisco Fleet Week is slated to return this year from October 3-11, 2021 with the return of the Air Show, the Parade of Ships, the humanitarian village and joint military and civilian disaster planning exercises.

The air show is planned for October 8-10 headlined by the Blue Angels.

San Francisco Fleet Week is an annual event that began in 1981 with a celebration of America’s Sea services led by then-Mayor Dianne Feinstein. Fleet Week takes place in early October each year to honor the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, and to enhance cooperation and the sharing of knowledge between civilian and military humanitarian assistance personnel.

The event attracts millions of visitors and generates over $10 million in annual revenue for the City each year. In addition, San Francisco Fleet Week has been recognized by the United States Department of Defense as a model for fleet week events across the nation.
