Buy a Burger for a Sailor

San Francisco Fleet Week is the non-profit organization that organizes the annual salute to the Armed Forces during October. 

Our team facilitates programs that are completely funded by our generous community partners and people like YOU!

Your contribution will make it possible to feed the troops at the Annual Crew BBQ, K-9 Heroes-Bark at the Park , and our Urban Search and Rescue Training on Treasure Island.

Please help us by supporting The Buy a Burger for a Sailor campaign. It's the perfect way to give back to Fleet Week so we can continue to deliver San Francisco's longest running, and proudest annual event to future generations. 

Our annual tribute event to the men and women of the Armed Forces consists of a weeklong series of Humanitarian and Disaster Response training exercises, military-aid related capability demonstrations, community celebrations, neighborhood band concerts and community relations projects benefitting a host of non-profit organizations in San Francisco such as the San Francisco Food Bank, and St Anthony's Dining Room. Of course, we also bring to you our world famous, San Francisco Fleet Week Air Show featuring our U.S. Navy Blue Angels.

But there is so much more to Fleet Week !

Fleet Week hosts an annual Veterans Services Resource Fair , a completely FREE event connecting Veterans from across the Bay Area with career opportunities and a multitude of supportive services. 

In partnership with the Academy of Art University, we host the Veteran Art Exhibit , providing Veteran artists the opportunity to showcase their art in the prestigous Cannery Galleries at Fisherman's Wharf. You will be impressed at the amazing talent as you experience this exhibit from the works of artists who have also made the choice to serve their country.

Fleet Week is also California's opportunity to pay tribute to all of those who made the ultimate sacrifice serving our country, we do this by holding our annual tradition, the Honor our Fallen Tribute Concert, a FREE event that honor's those men and women, and their families.
