Fleet Week Follies

Fleet Week Follies: Digital Edition

Fleet Follies Follies is an annual festival during Memorial Day weekend that brings military and civilian communities together for a day of celebration and entertainment by New York’s finest performers. 

The Tribute Performance Videos are now live! Click the images below to watch, or check them all out on our Youtube channel!

Featuring some of the most moving performances from last year’s festival, greetings from celebrity hosts, and messages of thanks to the essential workers – military and civilian – who are helping our city and our country make it through the COVID-19 pandemic. Don’t miss performances by Freestyle Love Supreme, who just wrapped their hit show on Broadway, Brandon Victor Dixon, who has starred in NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, Hamilton, and The Scottsboro Boys, and The American Military Spouses Choir, singing the signature song that made them fan favorites on the 8th season of America’s Got Talent.

To all our active duty service members, veterans, members of the National Guard and Reserve, healthcare and essential workers, and their families and caregivers — New York Loves You!

Each year, Fleet Week Follies hosts a Happy Hour where actors from NYC serve food and drinks and mingle with the crowd. This year, since we can’t gather in person over food and drink, we are hosting a series of informal conversations on Saturday, May 23 called The Conversation Project.

Each conversation will have 8-9 participants, with a mix of people with a military affiliation, civilians and essential workers. Two co-facilitators, one from the NYC arts and entertainment world and one from the military, will host each “room” and invite everyone to participate, express themselves, and, share some experiences about life during COVID-19.

The Conversation Project is now full. We’re looking forward to more opportunities to gather soon!

If you are confirmed to participate but cannot attend on Saturday, May 23, please let us know at
info@waterwell.org so that we can offer your spot to someone on the Waiting List.
