San Francisco Fleet Week 2021: Blue Angels + Schedule of Events

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.
