Fleet Week


Visiting officers enjoy the view at the Richard W. Scheuing CO/XO Welcome Reception.

Fleet Week New York, now in its 29th year, is our 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.

US Naval vessels have been visiting New York City in a celebratory manner since the aftermath of the Spanish–American War in 1898, when Commodore Dewey was celebrated as the hero of the battle of Manila Bay. However, the first official Fleet Week took place in New York City in 1982 and is generally timed to coincide with the Memorial Day holiday weekend. 

Fleet Week also marks the season of greatest visibility and activity of the New York Council. Each year, we plan many events to show our active-duty visitors, the local public and the national media how the Navy League values those who uphold the traditions of the maritime services. Our marquee event is an annual welcome reception for Commanding and Executive Officers from the participating units. We are pleased to announce that, beginning in 2017, this event has been named in honor of Richard W. Scheuing, a long-time Navy League member and supporter of the sea services. For more information about this and other events we are hosting this year, please view the pages within this section by selecting from the Fleet Week section of the Events menu in the top navigation.
