California's capital is scheduled to host members of the U.S. Navy during Sacramento Navy Week, July 16-22, coinciding with the California State Fair. Sacramento was such a great city for them in 2016 they decided to come back again this year.
Navy Week will bring Sailors from different units across the United States to conduct focused outreach events with members of the community. The Navy week will bring Sailors from USS Constitution, Navy Band Northwest, USS La Jolla, U.S. Navy Ceremonial Drill Team, Explosive Ordnance Group One, U.S. Naval Academy and Navy Operational Support Center Sacramento.
Multiple assets will participate in a Navy STEM Day at the Powerhouse Science Center on Tuesday, July 17 where attendees can interact with Sailors with hands-on activities throughout the day.
Sailors from Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 49, the Scorpions, will land a MH-60R helicopter at the California State Fair on Thursday for Military Appreciation Day. Attendees will be able to tour the helicopter as well as interact with sailors from multiple commands. Navy Band Northwest will play several concerts throughout the day at the fair.
