“Pensacola has long stood as a beacon of military pride, tracing back to the founding of the Pensacola Navy Yard by the US Navy in 1825. Navy Days serves as a poignant testament to the deep-seated reverence and appreciation our community holds for our military service members, their families, and esteemed veterans. The bond between our military and local communities is unbreakable, woven tightly through the fabric of a national history that is keenly felt here in Pensacola.

During Navy Days, we come together as a community to commemorate the unwavering spirit that has endured over two centuries, transcending both triumphs and trials, in times of both conflict and peace. I extend a heartfelt invitation to our military community, residents, and visitors alike, to join us in this new tradition - let us unite in celebration, honoring the legacy of our military and the resilient spirit of our beloved community.”

— CAPT Tim Kinsella, USN (Ret), Navy Days Chairman
