On October 3, 1931, Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon left Sabishiro Beach in Misawa, Japan, to fly Miss Veedol across the ocean in the first non-stop, transPacific flight. After 41 hours in the air, Miss Veedol crash landed on the bluffs above East Wenatchee. The Wenatchee Valley has been connected to Misawa and the aviation world ever since and Pangborn's Festival of Flight was created to celebrate this historic event.

Join us for a new, family friendly, community event! Learn about East Wenatchee's aviation history, check out some amazing airplanes, grab some lunch from our delicious food vendors, watch the Taiko Drums perform, have your face painted, visit our exhibitors and have fun learning with their exciting Japanese activities! 

This event is in conjunction with the Chelan Douglas Regional Port Authority.
