The San Francisco Fleet Week Air Show returns in 2021, after postponing in 2020, taking over the San Francisco skies between the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz for three days from October 8 to 10. Spectators can catch a headlining performance by the world-renowned U.S. Navy Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron, among other jaw-dropping performances from the Navy Parachute Team, Red Bull Air Force Wingsuit Skydivers and more. 

Fans from around the world travel to the San Francisco Bay Area for this annual event, which supports economic development and local businesses. “San Francisco Fleet Week Air Show attracts people from all over the globe as it is renowned for being one of the world’s best,” says Jim Breen, president and CEO of The Air Show Network. “With an iconic and spectacular setting over San Francisco Bay, there is nothing else like it anywhere.”
