Arlington SkyFest is a family-friendly weekend of fun.

It’s a balloon, it’s a plane … it’s Arlington SkyFest 2022!

Full weekend of fun includes Campout, SkyFest and Airport Community Day; Aug. 19 to 21

From the fun of Camp Out Friday, to the excitement of the airshow on SkyFest Saturday, to the free family activities on Take Flight Sunday, there’s something for everyone to enjoy Aug. 19 to 21.

The “Glow” hot air balloon performance is just one of the many spectacular shows at Arlington SkyFest.

The “Glow” hot air balloon performance is just one of the many spectacular shows at Arlington SkyFest.

This year’s airshow promises plenty of action and variety, with historic warbird aircraft, aerial performances, “Glow” hot air balloon performance, and a night drone show spectacular.

Performers include Jodi Rueger Airshows, Will Allen, the “Rock N Roll Airshow Man,” and a dual act by father-son team Ross and Bud Granley.

And don’t miss the two big B-17 and B-25 bombers flying with their escort fighter – for an extraordinary experience you can tour or even book a flight on one of these rare, historical military planes!

Other features include a classic car show, plenty of food vendors, Camp Adams military display, movies on the big screen, expanded kids’ area, and a drone cage. The show is set up in a family-friendly drive-in/tailgate format located on the west side of the airport, with tickets available online only (no tickets at gate).

You’ll have your own double-wide parking spot to set up and tailgate, and you can roam the broad common spaces to check out the displays or have a snack.

Even better, “we’re happy to say that our prices have remained the same as last year, thanks to sponsors like Amazon and Boeing,” says SkyFest’s Randal Southam.

Camping is back!

The Arlington Skyfest welcomes everyone to enjoy the convenience of spending entire weekend in the campground, with underwing and road vehicle camping spots available.

The campground, which opens Friday at noon with checkout Sunday at 5 p.m., includes showers, amenities, movies starting Friday night and even live music!

Tickets for camping are available online only, with no tickets available at the gate.

The weekend wraps up on Sunday with the Arlington Airport Community Fun Day, located on the east side of the airport, with a shuttle running to and from SkyFest.

The day is filled with free, fun family activities, including Young Eagles flights, food vendors, Arlington Fire and Police displays, flight simulators, face painting and bouncy house, and of course – ice cream!

“The whole weekend is a great family-oriented event, with so much to see and do,” Southam says. “The kids really love riding the tram, and you can bring a blanket and a picnic and have a really great time!”
