Fleet Week 2023: Blue Angels Arrival & Practice Survey Flights (SF)
Look up in the sky when you hear the roaring of jet engines and head down to SF’s northern waterfront and for San Francisco’s annual Fleet Week airshow and festival which is back in 2023.
Although there is a full week of events, the epochal annual air show takes place October 6-8, 2023 when fans from across the Bay converge on hills, rooftops and all along the waterfront to behold the spectacular taking place over San Francisco Bay between Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz.
San Francisco Fleet Week
October 2-10, 2023
See the full air show schedule (not yet updated for 2023) – Please note the festival website says “October 2-10” but often there are hardly any events the first two days and the final day except for neighborhood concerts.
TENTATIVE 2023 Schedule of events
Thursday, OCTOBER 5TH
- Ship Tours – 10am to 4pm – Pier 30/32 + Pier 35
- Air Show Practice – Typically in the afternoon you’ll hear the Blue Angels buzzing downtown doing practice runs
- Honor Our Fallen Concert – 6pm at Herbst Theater w/ U.S. Marine Corps 1st Marine Division Band – FREE but tix required
Although it’s not the full airshow later in the week, typically the Blue Angels will do survey flights periodically during the time period of about 1-5 pm on Thursday.
So, although it’s not guaranteed, on Thursday you should be able to see (and hear) the Blue Angels buzzing the city and over the waterfront doing their annual Survey Flights of San Francisco.
