Lighting up the sky
Saturday August 20!

The 2022 SkyFest begins before sunset, and continues into darkness with spectacular effects. Bring the family, a blanket and watch the show on the west side of Arlington Airport!

Enjoy our outdoor common spaces!

Feel free to walk our broad common spaces! Plus you also have your own private space in your outdoor double-wide parking spot.

Visit a food truck (or two!) for a snack. See the displays of military vehicles. Watch a movie at our large screen before the main activities.  Have the kids enjoy simulators and a play park.

When it’s time for the show you can return to your parking space and sit in comfy lawn chairs you bring!
It will be a great family fun event.


Enjoy a great show in your own double-wide parking space

15’x30′ parking spaces include more than 450 square feet of space for you to park, setup a picnic, lawn chairs or whatever you would like to do! Our VIP section area is even larger, and closer to the action. Camper and large RV’s will be parked in a separate area due to their size.

With most health restrictions lifted, you can also walk around to visit our food trucks and displays of military vehicles!

Pre-purchase tickets only. No sales at gate.

2021 Frequently Asked Questions (2022 may differ)


No! Your car and any picnic setup is, but you are not! As health restrictions have lifted, you may absolutely visit common areas, food vendors, and walk to visit our displays at our outdoor event. Please respect other guest’s spaces.

Yes, there will be several food trucks for you to choose from. We also encourage everyone to bring a picnic, hydrating beverages and/or snack items.

There are 3 general parking areas. Reserved spaces not available. First come, first parked. A vehicle must occupy each space. Groups of vehicles wishing to be together should plan to come through the gate together. Parking near someone specific is not assured.

Weather conditions may dictate changes to advertised performances. We plan to offer as much of a show as possible rain or shine. All sales are final.

No.  All people must arrive with you in your vehicle when you come through the gate.


Unfortunately no, there is a level 2 burn ban in effect that includes recreational fires.  As all parking is on dry grass, we can’t have any open flames or grills.

Can I bring my RV & Are there camping spaces?

Large campers and RVs will be parked in a special area regardless of ticket due to size.  We do not have a general overnight camping area in 2021
