About the Organization

FLEET WEEK is a time-honored celebratory event put together by the United States Navy, United

States Marine Corps and United States Coast Guard. For one week each year, active military

ships travel to New York bearing thousands of sailors who will come to the city, visit top tourist

attractions and invite the public to take guided tours of the ships. The weeklong event proudly

showcases the best these ships have to offer, along with a number of exciting and educational

presentations, search & rescue demonstrations and black tie gala.

About the Event

Staten Island Fleet Week 2018 and Rockin’ Our Troops will be held at USS The Sullivan’s Pier. The

purpose of the event in Staten Island is to bring the military together with local community

members and visitors who come from far and wide to see the ships, meet the sailors and explore

our great city. We are fortunate to have the Navy bring naval vessels to the homeport each year

so that the public has the opportunity to tour the ships and share their appreciation for our

service members. An all-volunteer board and staff works hard to ensure Staten Island Fleet Week

supports the welfare of the visiting crew; providing sailors with plenty of recreation, positive

morale and special events.


Fleet Week 2018 kicks off with the “Parade of Ships” along the Hudson River, followed by daily

tours at the Pier and culminates in a weekend-long outdoor music festival with games, face

painting and fun for the whole family. “Rockin’ Our Troops’” was created to provide

entertainment to our service members and the public. There will be food trucks and beer

available at the site so guests can let loose and enjoy the sight of our Navy’s prestigious ships and

the beautiful views of the harbor.

Becoming a Sponsor

We are currently accepting bids from past and current supporters who wish to come on board as

an official sponsor of Staten Island Fleet Week. By agreeing to become a sponsor of our event,

you’ll be joining a noteworthy roster of companies who have historically made Fleet Week Staten

Island possible. To date, over 250 military ships have visited the Homeport site since 2000. Fleet

Week continues to bring in excess of 30,000 visitors to the event (not including the crew and their

families). As such, the event presents a unique opportunity for local businesses to become a part

of this historic weeklong tradition.


Staten Island Fleet Week will oversee approximately 300ft of tents set up for staff, guests, service

members and can easily accommodate a large number of local vendors who would like to

reserve a table to sell their products. Your contribution will enable us continue to work with the

United States Navy to meet all the necessary conditions required to continue bringing the ships

and military service members to Staten Island. Our city benefits greatly from the tourism

generated throughout the week and it is a wonderful opportunity for landmark attractions and

local businesses to generate additional awareness and revenue.

Your support allows us to continue to donate to the military, expand our Educational and

Scholarship programs and create a safe, enjoyable family-friendly event for the borough of

Staten Island.
