Festival D'Avion Runway 5K - New Fall Date

New Date: Saturday, October 30, 2021

We are announcing today that the Festival D’Avion will be shifting our 2021 dates from April 9-10, 2021 to October 29-30, 2021 due to continued local and state Covid-19 restrictions.  This difficult decision was made with guidance from the Pentagon and various military branches that are still restricting participation for air show events until later in the year.  We are optimistic that public outdoor events will have much more success by the end of the summer, and we look forward to getting the event back on track later this year.  We know there is great anticipation for events to return to the community at large, and we will continue honor the men and women that serve our country as we build a first class Festival for October.

Pre-registered participants will be automatically transferred to the new event date!
