Navy Day - October 13th
The Navy League of the United States organized the first Navy Day in 1922 on October 27 because it was the birthday of the navy-obsessed President Theodore Roosevelt. In 1923, over 50 major cities participated and the Navy sent a number of ships to various port cities for the occasion. The 1945 Navy Day was an especially large celebration, with President Truman reviewing the fleet in New York Harbor.
But, in the 1970s, researchers discovered the "birthday" of the Continental Navy to be October 13, 1775. So, Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt, worked with the Navy League to re-define October 13 as date of Navy Day. But, one can still find instances where it's celebrated on October 27th.
