Welcome to the largest event of its kind in the Northeastern USA! New this year: a major Food Truck Festival, featuring more than 20 food vendors offering a wide range of great things to eat. As we get closer to the event, we'll publish a list of visiting trucks.

We are like a special kind of country fair, built around displays of 750+ great airplanes and cars of virtually every type and vintage. We have 150 exhibitors, sponsors and advertisers, and offer many fun activities to interest the entire family.

We feature hundreds of airplanes and cars you can see up close and meet their proud owners. Our airplanes range from antiques dating back to the 1920's, to homebuilts, helicopters, small former military aircraft, and brand new airplanes on display by dealers. Our Car Show features old autos, brand new exotic vehicles, hot rods, muscle cars, ex-military vehicles, and more than 30 new cars on display. Airplane and car owners are urged to display their vehicles for judging, and we award trophies in many categories. Pets on leashes are welcome, and we even provide a watering station. Handicapped parking and restrooms are available. There is no entry fee, but your donation is appreciated. Nearby parking is available at $10, with proceeds to benefit the Boy Scouts. We are Cyclist Friendly (see link on left)
