Muskegon Air Fair

The Muskegon Air Fair was established in 1984 to promote the Muskegon County Airport, the community and aviation. Held annually in the third weekend in July, this event features a wide variety of aerial shows, including the Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds. Crowds routinely exceed 60,000 for the weekend. It celebrates the aviation pioneering spirit by showcasing the best civilian and military pilots in the world, along with their sophisticated flying machines.
