The Culpeper Air Fest is funded by the Culpeper Air Fest Foundation - a 501c(3) non-profit charitable organization chartered to promote aviation education, awareness and support in Culpeper. It is our goal to help you celebrate with us a great aviation heritage and experience. The show is locally produced, free to the public, and draws top performers from around the nation. Culpeper Air Fest features the ONLY civilian-owned-and-operated Harrier jump jet which can take off and land like a helicopter, yet flies at near-sonic speeds. We honor the contributions of a wide range of historic military aircraft in securing our nation's freedoms. Culpeper Air Fest is a fun, family-friendly and community-oriented event with something for everyone.
