If you are looking for spectacular air show entertainment, great food, live music, classic cars, and let's face it, the biggest and best all-day family event of the year… Tacoma's annual Fourth of July Freedom Fair on Ruston Way promises to deliver again. Between 1:30 and 3:30 PM the Tacoma Freedom Fair Airshow will take to the skies over Commencement Bay with some of the best aviation acts in the country.
Support your Tacoma Freedom Fair and Air Show so the tradition can continue. Please donate at the entry gate. Suggested admission donations:
$2 Fan - $5 Friend - $10 LEADER - $15 PATRIOT
Souvenir pins and stickers are available on a first come first served basis for those who contribute the suggested amount or more. Pins and stickers are good for discounts with participating Freedom Fair vendors – look for the signs that display the Freedom Fair logo.
For a prime location to view the air show go to Marine Park between the Lobster Shop and Katie Downs. Spectators will have a superior view of the show and soft grass to sit on. Come early and get a good spot! KLAY 1180 AM will broadcast the air show live, so bring your radio and tune into an aerial display that epitomizes a combination of power, skill, and courage.
