FREE High-Flying Fun at Tahoe Air Show
Truckee Tahoe Air Show & Family Festival
Truckee Tahoe Airport
10356 Airport Road
Saturday, July 11th
A fun, FREE way for your family to spend the day together, this aeronautical Truckee summer festival is not to be missed. Themed as a "Salute to Veterans," it all starts with a hearty breakfast at 9am, followed by the Opening Ceremony at 10am. Be sure to keep your eyes in the sky, as pilots perform aerial acrobatics and jaw-dropping maneuvers overhead all day long – including Guinness World Record stuntman, Spencer Suderman. In addition to air shows, there's also a Family Festival full of hands-on activities, a Vendor Village with purveyors from the Lake Tahoe region, a Food and Beer Garden, static plane displays, remote control flights abound, and speaker forums from famous authors, pilots, and aviation icons.
