“Parade of Ships” Under Golden Gate Bridge (Fleet Week 2021)
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Look up in the sky when you hear the roaring of jet engines and head down to SF’s northern waterfront and Dogpatch for San Francisco’s annual Fleet Week airshow and festival which is back in 2021 after a year off.
New for 2021 – The Blue Angels are celebrating their 75th anniversary with all new F-18 Super Hornets which are 25% larger than their previous planes.
San Francisco Fleet Week
October 4-11, 2021
Listen to the live Air Show Narration on Twitch – (Noon to 4pm) Trust us… this makes watching the air show much more interesting since you’ll get to learn about all the aircraft and the stunts they are performing.
2021 Schedule of events
Although the festival says the event in 2021 runs from October 3-11, the official calendar doesn’t have any events listed for October 4-5 other than free neighborhood concerts
Thursday, OCTOBER 7TH
- 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
Come see the Fleet enter the Bay under the Golden Gate Bridge as the visiting ships steam towards their ports, and Liberty Call for our honored Sailors and Marines. San Francisco Fleet Week hosts the largest Parade of Ships on the West Coast.
The procession of ships can be seen from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Bridge, with the reviewing stand at the Marina Green.
San Francisco Fire Department will provide lead escort with their fire boat shooting jets of water into the air to celebrate the Fleet’s arrival.
