About Fleet Week:
Each year, the military takes over San Francisco! The annual Fleet Week brings tens of thousands of military personnel to the area for a week of special Events, and the chance to learn a bit about the men and women in uniform and all they do to serve the country.

Attendees will have a chance not only to see Navy ships, but also to board and explore them. It’s not every day that civilians are allowed to enjoy a tour onboard a warship, but you can during Fleet Week. The Parade of Ships is one popular feature of this San Francisco Event, and thousands will gather to watch as the vessels make their way to Marina Green. Once the ships are in place, some of them will open for tours.

Other Events that take place during Fleet Week are the High School Band Challenge, and the K9s in Service program. Of all the fun Events and Activities that take place during Fleet Week, the Air Show is the highlight. More than one million people come to attend the Air Show, which attracts people from around the country to Hotels in San Francisco like Hotel Union Square.

The Air Show, which is free and open to the public, includes demonstrations from the Blue Angels, the Breitling Jet Team, the Navy Leap Frogs, the Patriots Jet Team, and many others. While there is no charge to view the Air Show, there are ways to enjoy an enhanced experience.

Consider purchasing premium box seat tickets (starting at $55), Flight Deck Club tickets (starting at $225), or even reserving a Private Chalet. Flight Deck Club tickets include a full buffet and drinks, including beer and wine. This is a fun way to get a VIP experience at the Fleet Week Air Show.
