America’s Navy is coming to Birmingham in 2018 as part of America’s Navy outreach. Birmingham is one of only 14 cities selected to host a Navy Week this year.
Birmingham Navy Week is scheduled for Apr. 9-15, 2018, coincident with the Blue Angels air show in Tuscaloosa, and is designed to give area residents an opportunity to learn about the Navy, its people and its importance to national security and prosperity.
The Navy plans to include the following elements in the week-long celebration:

- U.S. Navy Parachute Team “The Leap Frogs”
- Navy Band performances
- Sailors from USS Constitution, the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat
- Navy Medicine personnel
