Those low-flying jets you hear above this week aren’t a direct call to arms. That boisterous brouhaha signifies the beginning of Fleet Week, which happens from October 1 to October 7.
Before the weekend’s airshows take flight, expect to hear the roar of Canadian Snowbirds, United States Navy Blue Angels, Air Force F-16s, and other airborne crafts as they practice throughout the week.
While many enlistees can be found roaming city streets in full military regalia, here’s what will be happening in skies the above:
•Thursday, October 4: Blue Angels survey flights (1p.m. – 5p.m.)
•Friday, October 4: air show (12p.m. – 4p.m.)
•Saturday, October 6: air show (12p.m. – 4p.m.)
•Sunday, October 7: air show (12p.m. – 4p.m.)
There are many spots in the city to see the practice sessions and official airshows. Devotees can throw down anywhere from $55 to $250 for a Marina Green box seat. Otherwise, hilltop locales, like Chestnut and pass Leavenworth in Russian Hill, are free and easy. You can also check out the soaring vehicles of steel and grit from almost anywhere along the Embarcadero.

San Francisco Events in October 2018
Fleet Week, Halloween & More this Month in SF
October in San Francisco offers blue skies, sunshine, and fun events every weekend. You’ll find the city’s best weather during this season, so take some time to play outside.
Enjoy several kid-friendly activities for Halloween 2018. These events fall both on the weekend before and on the big holiday, so you can celebrate both weekends. Highlights this year include the SuperNatural Halloween Event at the California Academy of Sciences, Boo at the Zoo at the San Francisco Zoo, and the Annual Spooktacular Halloween Party in Japantown.
Location: Fisherman’s Wharf & waterfront
Join the crowds that come out to the waterfront every year for SF’s Fleet Week to be wowed by the Blue Angels roaring by in formation just overhead. The Blue Angels will perform on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
Festivities will kick off with the Parade of Ships and throughout the week you can watch airshow practices and tour military ships as well. It’s by far the biggest of the San Francisco events in October.
SF Theater: Miss Saigon
Location: Orpheum Theatre
The biggest theater performance this month is the revival of the Tony award winning musical, Miss Saigon. Based on the opera Madame Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini, this show is set in Vietnam during the war in the 1970s.
It’s an epic love story between an American soldier and a young, local Vietnamese bargirl.
It originally opened on Broadway in 1991. The revival opened in 2017 on Broadway and is now traveling throughout the country. All shows are at the Orpheum Theatre.
More Theater Performances in October
On Your Feet (9/11 – 10/7): You will want to get on your feet with this new musical! It’s the story of Emilio and Gloria Estafan’s rise to fame. All shows are at the Golden Gate Theatre.
Waitress (10/15 – 11/11): One of my current favorites is Waitress. It’s the story of a small town waitress that dreams of a better life. Her plan is to use her amazing pie making skills to get there.
SF Opera: Tosca
Location: San Francisco War Memorial & Performing Arts Center
Going to the San Francisco Opera is an unforgettable experience. This month, you can catch a performance of Tosca, a Puccini classic set in Rome in the 1800s.
It’s at a time when Napoleon is threatening to take over this Rome and includes murder, torture and suicide.
This 3-act opera is sung in Italian with English supertitles and lasts about 2 hours and 45 minutes with intermissions.
Hardly Strictly Bluegrass
Don’t miss the 18th year of this huge free bluegrass festival. For three days, several stages in Golden Gate Park will feature the biggest names in the genre. Pack your own refreshments for a picnic in the park, or check out the more than 50 gourmet food and beverage vendors, in addition to the great music. (10/5 – 10/7)
Every year, SF’s longest running literary festival brings light to great reads and the world of literature through a variety of venues, including churches, bookstores, and even popular bars. For over a week, you get to engage with authors, participate in workshops, attend panel discussions and groups readings, and more. (10/11 – 10/20)
San Francisco Wharf Fest
Head over to Fisherman’s Wharf on Saturday, October 21 for this annual street festival. Get into the San Francisco spirit with the Chowder Tasting Competition, live music, and great views of the bay. It’s one of the free San Francisco events in October. (10/20)
Potrero Hill Festival
If you’re looking for a fun weekend activity for the whole family, head over to the Potrero Hill Festival on 20th Street between Missouri and Wisconsin. On a beautiful fall day, this is the perfect place to enjoy two stages of live entertainment, food stalls, bouncy houses, a petting zoo, and more. In addition, you’ll find arts and crafts for sale as well as information from various non-profit organizations. This event is in its 29th year and typically attracts more than 6,000 visitors. (10/20)
