Portland Rose Festival Fleet Week
|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until June 11, 2023
Since 1907, visiting ships have made their way to Portland’s waterfront. The City of Roses is known to be a favorite port of call for military (and non-military) visitors, as Portland’s citizens thank them and make them feel welcome. The Portland Rose Festival is extremely fortunate to be one of a few U.S. Ports of Call for a courtesy visit from the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, and Royal Canadian Navy. Their arrival commemorates a relationship with the Navy that has lasted more than 100 years, and over 80 years of visiting Portland during the Rose Festival. It is a significant commitment by the Navy to make Rose Festival Fleet Week one of the premier Fleet Week events in the country.
During Fleet Week, ship tours are offered on a first-come first-served basis. Tour times will vary for each ship and are subject to change without notice.
2023 visiting ships will be announced June 7, 2023.
