Olympia, WA OLYMPIC AIR SHOW RESCHEDULED FOR AUGUST 10-11, 2013

Due to sequestration, all participation of military aircraft at air shows around the nation has been cancelled this year.  A change in the Air Show date was required in order to accommodate needed civilian performers.  Nationally, over 35 air shows have cancelled due to sequestration.  However, the Olympic Air Show directors have elected to remain committed to our region by hosting their annual air show despite the absence of military assets.  The Olympic Air Show has been rescheduled for August 10-11, 2013 in order to accommodate the many civilian performers featured in the show which will also include increased performances by Olympic Flight Museum aircraft.

The family-friendly Olympic Air Show will celebrate its 15th year in 2013, and is the primary fundraiser for the Olympic Flight Museum.  The event typically draws over 10,000 visitors to Tumwater, and generates tourism revenue in Thurston County.  Participation of air and ground assets serves as a major draw for the event, and provides exciting entertainment for families at a reasonable price in a wholesome, patriotic, festival-like atmosphere.

Tickets will go on sale May 1 for the August event.  Early hotel reservations are highly recommended.  For information, visit www.olympicairshow.com or www.olympicflightmuseum.com.
