A parade of planes, stilt walkers, face painting, arts and crafts, games, music, and lots of cool aviators will be at the free Truckee Tahoe AirFair & Family Festival on July 8, 2017 starting at 9 a.m. at the Truckee Tahoe Airport.

The event will feature static aircraft displays with pilot docents; aircraft flybys; free (EAA) Young Eagle flights for children ages 8 to 17 (with parental permission) the day after, kids activities, airport souvenirs, and lots more family fun.

Gates open at 9 a.m. with a no host breakfast. Opening Ceremony starts at approximately 10 a.m.  Look to the sky!

Kids FLY for FREE on Sunday, July 9 at the Truckee Tahoe Airport!

Create an unforgettable memory for any child ages 8 to 17 years-old. FREE flights for kids from the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) local chapter 1073 will take place on Sunday.  An experience like this could change a child’s life, inspiring he or she to develop a life-long passion for aviation.

Sign up in advance at the 2015 AirShow & Family Festival at the EAA building on July 11. (*The EAA building is located at the far east end of the ramp.) Go to the EEA Building at the far east end of the airport ramp on Saturday, July 8 and sign up. The EAA Young Eagles volunteer pilots fly children on Sunday, July 9.

100% of the proceeds from the AirFair & Family Festival benefit programs and projects for Truckee/North Tahoe youth. The inaugural 2012 event raised over $50,000 for local youth scholarships, sports, arts programs; camps and much more. Three local non-profit organizations, along with our sponsors, make the event happen! They are the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 1073, KidZone Museum and the Truckee Optimist Club. The Truckee Tahoe Airport District pays for all the operational costs.

Welcome to this place we call home. Welcome to Lake Tahoe. Meet the local artists, individuals, businesses and events that define our unique mountain culture and embody Tahoe's creative and entrepreneurial spirit.
