NORFOLK, VA (NRMA) – The U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Coast Guard has officially announced dates for 2018 Fleet Week New York (FWNY).

Now in its 30th year, FWNY is scheduled to take place May 23-29. The weeklong celebration is the city’s time-honored celebration of the sea services, and an unparalleled opportunity for the citizens of New York and the surrounding tri-state area to meet Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen, as well as witness firsthand the latest capabilities of today’s maritime services.

The event has been held nearly every year since 1984, and it is anticipated that nearly 2,100 Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen will participate this year.

In addition to public visitation of participating ships, there will be numerous exhibits, military band concerts, and aviation events throughout the week showcasing the skilled expertise of our dedicated sea service members.
