The event will happen from September 7 to 13. Fleet Week drew around 400,000 people to Baltimore the last time it was held in 2019, Hornig said.

“We’re gonna have a great time at the Inner Harbor, in addition to the ship visits and the flyover, we’re gonna have a party that showcases local bands, local food and beverage,” she said. “We’re really looking to showcase the best of Baltimore.”
