San Diego is Birthplace of Nationwide Annual Events

In June of 1935, San Diego hosted the inaugural Fleet Week celebration as part of the California Pacific International Exposition. Under command of U.S. Navy Admiral Joseph M. Reeves, Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Fleet, 114 warships and 400 military planes arrived with more than 3,000 commissioned officers and 55,000 enlisted men. Thousands of San Diegans and other exposition-goers were guests on the various ships.

Over time, community and business leaders who understood the great depth of public support for our military cultivated Fleet Week San Diego. They shared a vision to recognize the contributions made by the armed services to the many communities of the greater San Diego region.

To fulfill its mission, Fleet Week San Diego honors the men and women of the military through public events and alliances that support and thank these heroes throughout the year. Events such as the Coronado Speed Festival, Enlisted Golf Tournament, Enlisted Recognition Luncheon and Miramar Air Show are sell-outs year after year, and provide a way for the San Diego community to interact with the military in otherwise restricted ways.
