USNA Commissioning Week

The United States Naval Academy prepares for a week of tradition, ceremony, and celebration for its graduating class of 2018. Commissioning Week involves a full week of celebratory events the last week of May, culminating with graduation day at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Even if you don't know anyone graduating from the Academy this year, Commissioning Week offers a host of events, some available to the public, that provide a taste of the history and tradition of the United States Naval Academy, along with an airshow out on by the famed Blue Angels.


This Event is Brought to You By U.S. Naval Academy Welcome Center

Visit the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD to see where future officers are educated and trained.  The “yard,” as the lush grounds of the Academy are called, reflects the beauty of Beaux Arts architecture and historical monuments commemorating naval events.

The Armel-Leftwich Visitor Center is conveniently located inside USNA Gate 1 at the Annapolis harbor. Pedestrian entrances are on Prince George and Randall Streets.  The Visitor Center provides guided historical tours for visitors, as well as groups.
