The touring Navy Band Northeast is making their first full appearance in Portland for an unforgettable show on the Eastern Prom. From Top 40 hits to classical music and Navy favorites, the Navy Band will play it all at this free outdoor concert.

America’s Navy is coming home to Portland, Maine, one of 15 cities selected to host a Navy Week, one of the Navy’s signature outreach programs.

Portland Navy Week is scheduled for August 21-27, 2017, to coincide with the Great State of Maine Blue Angels Air Show. It is designed to give area residents an opportunity to learn about the Navy, its people and its importance to national security and prosperity.
