“Parade of Ships” Under Golden Gate Bridge (Fleet Week 2023)
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 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.

See the full air show schedule (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.
