As a result of the federal budget reductions levied by sequestration, the US Navy has canceled the 2013 "Navy Week" season.

The Navy Week is an exhibition of Navy personnel and equipment that tours about 20 American cities each year, giving Americans the opportunity to see historical displays and artifacts, the famous Navy Parachute Team, the SEABEES, and the Blue Angels. The 2013 season was to consist of 18 cities, including Providence.

Despite the cancellation of the 2013 Navy Week Program, the Navy is still trying to coordinate some form of community outreach.
