“San Diego is definitely a military town,” said Bill Baugh a retired Army colonel and current 2021 president of the San Diego Fleet Week Foundation. “We’re proud of the work our military men and women perform, both in their service to our country and in our community, and we know that the people of San Diego join us in honoring and thanking these outstanding men and women.”
The mission of Fleet Week San Diego is to honor and celebrate the men and women of the military through public events that entertain and alliances that support and thank these heroes.
Fleet Week San Diego was created by community and business leaders who understood the great depth of public support for our Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen. This group sought to provide a means for San Diego to express its support in a way that would establish San Diego as a patriotic, pro-military city. They shared a vision to recognize the contributions made by the naval services to the many communities of the greater San Diego region.
In 1997, after extensive planning
and team building, Fleet Week San Diego was born. Nurtured by the Chamber of Commerce, the annual series of events grew quickly into a recognized feature of the region’s annual calendar. By 2001, Fleet Week San Diego had outgrown its home in the Chamber and was incorporated as The San Diego Fleet Week Foundation, a California Public Benefit Corporation and non-profit.
SDFW Foundation donates proceeds in excess of operating expenses from Fleet Week San Diego to charities that provide critical support to military families.
