Proud Sponsor of the 2016 Truckee Tahoe Air Show & Family Festival

The Truckee Tahoe Air Show & Family Festival is flying into its fifth year with family-filled activities and full-throttle fun. Admission and parking are free. The event happens on Saturday, July 9, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This year’s theme is Space, Science and Beyond, an exploration into STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. All details are available at

The air show will bring the Truckee sky alive with world-renowned performers including Spencer Suderman (Guinness World Record holder for inverted flat spins), Rich Perkins soaring full speed in the Fire Cat jet, Danny Sorenson with his own designed and built BF9-2 biplane, and Bill Braack racing his Smoke-n-Thunder Jet Car against an airplane. And there’s much more. Huge warbirds will be on display and modern aircraft too.
A Family Festival by Truckee’s KidZone Museum fills the airport’s lawn with families having fun. Children’s activities include puppet shows, music sing-a-longs, stilt walkers, face painting, story-telling, and a spectacular view of the air show.

Sign-ups for free flights for kids ages 8 to 17 happen on Saturday, July 9. Flights occur on Sunday, July 10. For a cost, take a ride in a warbird from the Commemorative Air Force SoCal Wing or a helicopter.

VIP Hospitality Tent gives guests a chance to have the best seats in the house. A pass includes a catered lunch, beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages, shade, tables, chairs and even private restrooms. Tickets are $45 in advance and $50 the day of the show. A limited amount of tickets are on sale online and at the airport.

The Truckee Tahoe Airport District funds the operational cost of the event as a gift to the Truckee North Tahoe Community. This structure allows the three non-profit organizations that produce the event an opportunity to raise money for local youth.

Hampton Inn and Suites is a proud sponsor for this year’s event. Conveniently located less than a mile away. Join us for the weekend. Book early the hotel is filling up.
