NYC Fleet Week takes place every year in late May, spanning Memorial Day Weekend. Many of the events take place at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum (which charges admission, though military (retired and active) are admitted free), but there are also lots of free activities, including ship tours in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Staten Island, performances and demonstrations around New York City.
