Individuals are encouraged to take, post, and share photos and videos of the event, and tag #FleetWeekNYC on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. The event will also be live-streamed on the official Fleet Week New York Facebook page.

Now in its 31st year, FWNY is the city’s time-honored celebration of the sea services. It is 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. It is estimated that nearly 2,600 Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen will participate as ships arrive in the New York Harbor for the 2019 Parade of Ships on May 22.
