Tampa Bay AirFest 2016

Tampa Bay AirFest 2016 is here! This is our favorite time of the year, because we have a chance to give back to a community that gives us so much. In 2014, AirFest was awarded "Best Military Site" by the USAF Thunderbirds due to the incredible partnership between MacDill and Tampa Bay, and we expect this airshow to surpass those lofty expectations.

We are continually adding new demonstrations and static displays, so check back often. To keep up with the news as it happens or to send us a question, visit us at, and don't forget to use our hashtag: #AirFest2016.
