A Pacific Northwest tradition since 1950, Seafair Weekend is the culmination of the Seafair Festival. Dubbed by some as an unofficial Seattle holiday, this is the most anticipated event of summer. Seafair Weekend offers a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, tastes and action. With boat racing on the water, aerobatic performers in the sky, live music and delicious food on land, the best place to experience Seafair Weekend is at Genesee Park on Lake Washington!
Description: One of the most impressive air shows in the country, the Boeing Seafair Air Show returns in 2017 with more exciting acts and daring aerial maneuvers than ever before!

Description: Celebrate Seafair and the Blue Angels at the 3rd annual Jet Blast Bash! The Museum becomes the backstage of the Seafair Airshow for this two-day event, offering Seattle’s closest views of the Blue Angels’ dramatic takeoffs and landings.
Take in the runway action while enjoying outdoor family activities, classic car and plane displays, Blue Angels history talks and live music. Your favorite foods and festive refreshments are available all day, while kids can leap with a trampoline courtesy of Springfree. Then there are the airplanes–two rare World War II warbirds are flying-in for their first appearance at the Bash—a Lockheed P-38 Lightning and a Consolidated PBY Catalina! And by popular demand, SR-71 spyplane pilot and author Brian Shul returns with his heroic survival story in a special presentation and meet ‘n’ greet.
All activities included with Museum admission.
