Fleetweek San Francisco 2014
Taking place over three consecutive days, this event attracts over a million
people every year. The United States Navy Blue Angels put on a breathtaking
display, while on the ground visitors enjoy a family friendly festival featuring
the Fleet Week Humanitarian Village.
San Francisco Fleet Week (SFFW) began in 1981 when
then Mayor Diane Feinstein led the nation in celebrating America’s sea services.
Taking place every October on the Marina Green
over Italian Heritage Weekend, SFFW’s air show, parade of ships and many
community events have become a significant and integral part of the city’s local
culture and economy.
As the largest and most significant event of its
kind in the nation, SFFW features a unique training and education program that
brings together civilian and military forces to develop and share best practices
in humanitarian assistance and emergency disaster response.
Consistently attracting millions of visitors,
creating important and lasting relationships for its partners, and generating
over 10M in annual revenue for the city, SFFW is now recognized by the United
States Department of Defense as the model for fleet weeks across the country.
San Francisco Fleet Week is an annual public event
that honors the contributions of the men and women of the United States Armed
Forces while advancing cooperation and knowledge among civilian- and
military-based Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response personnel.
