Maryland Fleet Week & Air Show Baltimore Cancelled

WASHINGTON – Naval District Washington (NDW), Baltimore, Md. officials, Living Classrooms, and Historic Ships in Baltimore, in the interest of the health and safety of the citizens of Baltimore, have made the difficult decision to cancel the Maryland Fleet Week & Airshow Baltimore originally scheduled for Sept. 9-14 2020.

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, continues to spread across the United States and would pose a threat to the health of visitors, event staff, volunteers, and our sailors. The COVID-19 pandemic makes it extremely difficult to safely manage a large-scale event and guarantee everyone’s safety.

Maryland Fleet Week & Airshow Baltimore has always been an extremely popular event and the Navy looks forward to returning to Baltimore when visitors can enjoy a festive event safely and with confidence.

NDW in coordination with partners in Baltimore invite everyone to enjoy Baltimore’s first Virtual Fleet Week & Air Show Sept. 8-11, 2020. The Virtual Fleet Week will capture a small sampling of the majesty and excitement of the traditional fleet week and can be found using @mdfleetweek on social media platforms.
