Maryland Fleet Week and Air Show Baltimore, October 10-17, 2016


Maryland Fleet Week and Air Show Baltimore celebrates the rich naval traditions of the Chesapeake Bay and the contributions of Marylanders to the defense of the nation. The Blue Angels'  F/A 18 Hornet fighter jets and other aircraft will be on display on the Martin State Airport tarmac and in the skies over Fort McHenry and Middle Branch on October 15 & 16, while  U.S. and  Canadian navy vessels will be ready for boarding visitors in the Inner Harbor, Fells Point and Locust Point throughout the week and weekend.

Maryland Department of Commerce, Division of Tourism Film and the Arts (DTFA), in conjunction with the U.S. Navy, are planning Maryland Fleet Week and Air Show Baltimore for October 2016. Modeled on the success of Star-Spangled Sailabration and Star-Spangled Spectacular, Fleet Week will include an air show featuring the Blue Angels,  the commissioning of the U.S. Navy's new futuristic destroyer, military ship tours, schooner pageantry and landside activities for visitors to Baltimore's famed Inner Harbor.
