LA Fleet Week Invites Public to Celebrate Military Services Over Memorial Day Weekend


Family-friendly event will include active-duty ship tours, military displays, interactive exhibits, live entertainment, STEM activities, and aircraft flyovers.

SAN PEDRO, Calif., May 16, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- LA Fleet Week, the annual multi-day celebration of our nation's Sea Services, will take place over Memorial Day weekend, May 27-30, 2022, in San Pedro at the Port of Los Angeles. For the first time in LA Fleet Week history, this year's event will take place concurrently with Fleet Week New York, creating simultaneous coast-to-coast celebrations over a holiday for remembering the U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the United States armed forces.

Free to the general public, the family-friendly LA Fleet Week will be hosted at the Port of Los Angeles with the LA Fleet Week EXPO area in the footprint of the historic Battleship IOWA Museum. Event activities will include active duty ship tours, military displays and equipment demonstrations, live entertainment, aircraft flyovers, a STEM Expo presented by Snapdragon with activities for kids of all ages, food trucks, Galley Wars presented by Fox Entertainment, a culinary cook-off competition between Navy, Marine and Coast Guard teams, and more.

Free event parking will be available at the lot on 22nd Street between Samson Way and Miner Street in San Pedro, with free shuttle service provided to and from the LA Fleet Week EXPO area. Street and garage parking in downtown San Pedro is available, but varies in price. Access to all LA Fleet Week activities, including ship tours, will be through the EXPO area at Battleship USS IOWA Museum, located at 250 S. Harbor Blvd in San Pedro. Due to security and traffic constraints, vehicles will not be permitted to travel past 22nd Street, and pedestrians will not be admitted into the ship tour area. They must be shuttled in from the EXPO area.
