Up in the Air Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

23 May 2021 Once Only Event

Pack up the family and head to Rathmines Park on Sunday 23 May for a celebration of all things aerial, featuring fly-overs from historic aircraft and exciting aerobatic displays!

With its renowned history as a WWII RAAF base, Rathmines Park is a fitting location for all the action, which will also include classic car displays, live entertainment, brass band performances, vintage dance demonstrations and workshops. There will be plenty of action to keep the kids entertained throughout the day, with ‘make and fly your own kite’ workshops, magic shows, interactive science shows, giant bubbles, hoola hooping, roving stilt-walkers and the dedicated art and craft Kids’ Zone. Local personality and NBN weatherman Gavin Morris, a veteran paraglider, will also make an appearance.

Joy flights with Hunter Valley Helicopters will be available throughout the day, advance bookings are essential and not included in the festival ticket price.
