Wings & Wheels Festival

2021 Wings & Wheels Festival - Cancelled

The Wings and Wheels Festival was created to celebrate Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon making the first non-stop, trans-Pacific flight. The pilots, flying Miss Veedol, departed Misawa, Japan and crash landed on the bluffs above East Wenatchee, on October 5, 1931. Wings and Wheels is held every year on the anniversary of their flight.

Our Community comes together during this Festival and makes it a fun experience for everyone! From the Friday Car Cruise, Saturday Car Show, Swap Meet, Miss Veedol viewing, RC flying field demonstrations and Kids Day Activities to live entertainment, raffles and awards. This Festival has a little something for everyone!
