Big Country Air Fest for 2022 is cancelled.
Hello Everyone! We are Sad to announce today that we are having to cancel Airfest 2022. There are multiple factors surrounding the fires south of town that would make it difficult for the show to proceed. As well more and more of the airport is being used for other equipment that the fire services is bringing in.
We hope everyone stays safe! We will see y'all next year!
