The U.S. Navy Blue Angels are returning to Baltimore this year for the Maryland Fleet Week & Air Show. Maryland Fleet Week & Air Show festivities take place from September 9th to September 14th and the air show will take place on September 12th and 13th.

Recommend sites for viewing the air show include Fort McHenry, the “Inner Harbor Area,” Canton Waterfront Park, Riverside Park, Cherry Hill Park, Reed Bird Island Park, and Garrett Park. The air shows are always popular days for rooftop deck parties around South Baltimore.

Maryland Fleet Week & Air Show takes place in Baltimore every two years and celebrates “the rich maritime traditions of the Chesapeake Bay and the contributions of Marylanders to the defense of the nation.” The first Maryland Fleet Week and Air Show was in 2016. This followed the Star-Spangled Banner Spectacular in 2014 and the Star-Spangled Sailabration in 2012.

The Blue Angels have performed an air show at each event other than in 2018 when the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds took to the sky in Baltimore.

Maryland Fleet Week & Air Show will also feature tours of local ships and tours of U.S. and international Naval ships. The Fleet Week Festival will fill the Inner Harbor with live music, exhibits, food, and drinks.
