Get ready for Speed, Smoke, Noise and Fun! The 38th Annual Wings Over Camarillo Air Show | Car Show | Festival presented by California Aeronautical University will take place August 18 and 19 at Camarillo Airport. Gates open at 9 a.m. with air show performances from noon to 4:30 p.m. both days.
With thrilling aerial performances, military aircraft displays, classic cars on parade, live entertainment, WWII Reenactor camp, food trucks and craft beer, Wings Over Camarillo (WOC) is an event not to be missed. To enhance the guest experience, WOC has added all-day entertainment brought to you by Rock City Studios, a Saturday evening concert by the Spazmatics, beer stations throughout the event featuring Hangar 24 craft beer and other premium brews, WWII aircraft up close, where you will be able to see, touch and smell history, expanded tram service within event grounds, box seating and RV Overnight Parking. To share the passion of aviation with the next generation, WOC will also include an enhanced STEM Pavilion with local school robotic teams competing for prizes and hands-on kid’s zone. We continue to Salute our Ventura County veterans and active duty military personal at the Veterans Hangar.
Our community faced incredible challenges this past year during the Thomas Fire and mudslides that followed, and WOC will honor those who helped keep us safe as the theme for 2018, “A Special Tribute to Firefighters.” Serving as the 2018 Grand Marshal will be Ventura County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen. A limited edition patch will be sold as a fundraiser for The Ventura County Widows and Orphans & Assistance Fund.
New airshow acts include the Vampire Jet – the world’s first single engine fighter jet. Fan favorites Vicky Benzing, John Collver, & The West Coast Ravens, and local favorites Judy Phelps, Tim Just and Sammy Mason will return to this year’s airshow lineup.
