2017 NW Art and Air Festival Information
SAVE the DATE: August 26th and 27th at the Albany Municipal Airport
NW Art and Air Festival is a Citywide event where Art vendors come together with Hot Air Balloonist and Aviators! While most of the events happen at Timber Linn Park which is located across the fence from the Albany Municipal Airport, tremendous amount of activities happen at the Airport as well.
In 2016, we had great feedbacks from event-goers, vendors, and pilots and plan to make 2017 event even better! As this is specific to the Albany Municipal Airport, our goal is to provide Aviation FUN for children, young adults, and parents.
With that being said, before anything, we would like to acknowledge the following groups and persons for their tireless effort in helping organize and run this event.
