This year, Fleet Week San Francisco runs from October 4-8. The official Blue Angels Air Show takes place on Saturday and Sunday, October 6-7.

Expect HUGE crowds this year — bigger than usual because Fleet Week coincides with the America's Cup World Series Racing (Oct. 2-7) in San Francisco Bay.

San Francisco's annual Fleet Week event features a Parade of U.S. Navy Ships, Survey Flights and Practice Air Shows, Blue Angels Air Shows, Ship Tours... and more! Arrive early because it's expected to be another big Fleet Week celebration — drawing well over one million spectators.
