21st RI National Guard Air Show- Quonset Point- North Kingstown RI 02852- June 25 – 26th – Free Admission
The Quonset State Airport is gearing up for a phenomenal weekend of fun in the sky and down below at Quonset. This RI National
Guard air show is an event at which aviators display their flying skills and the capabilities of their aircraft to spectators in aerobatics and great flying skills. It is a FREE event! It is an amazing day of entertainment on the ground with the aircraft displays that you can go on & into and experience the thrills of being up in the blue sky. It gives kids of all ages a chance to see close up what our military personnel use in the air protecting our country. Then the amazing aerial shows are just happening all day entertaining everyone and because it is right on Narragansett Bay, it is doubly awesome. It is a world class show for all and not to be missed. Don’t you think these high performing flyers enjoy the waterfront North Kingstown views from up above too!
This RI National Guard Air Show is rated as one of the Top Three Air Shows in the country so it’s no wonder that it draws between 50,000 to 70,000 visitors to it each day!! Even the air show performers and military contributors have commented that the RI brand of great hospitality keeps them coming back to our little RI state year after year. What a nice thing for RI to be remembered for. Actually, I have not missed the RI National Guard Air Show in years…it is just a spectacular event and starting Tuesday we will begin to see our RI skies filled with the planes practicing. It is huge here when the Blue Angels fly overhead or the F-22 Raptor and you can almost touch the aircraft at they travel the North Kingstown RI waterfront and coastal shores.
Being on the tarmac and watching the aerial displays, maneuvers and just the amazing speed of these aircraft is an experience. You can bring chairs and umbrellas to sit in and shield yourself from the sun and plenty of sunscreen- there is so much to see on the ground too. Be aware that this is a military base and all bags will be searched upon entrance. No coolers or pets allowed. There is NO charge for this air show but a requested $10 donation per car goes to support local RI Charities with the largest one being Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence RI.

One of my RI real estate clients is a Rhode Island Air National Guard member and she is working on the air show to make things run smoothly with an incredible support team. So I wish them all success because the RI Air National Guard plans all year for this event and its success. As a Rhode Islander I am so appreciative of this effort and the over $1.5 million they have raised for local charities over the years.
The Blue Angels are back in our RI National Guard Air show this year! As a local, I can watch them pre-show days by just standing by the shore or in a Quonset area parking lot…starting today the roar of the overhead planes will be getting the feel for the RI skies. Come out and watch and support this event. So pack up on Saturday or Sunday and head on over to the 21st RI National Guard Air Show- Quonset Point- North Kingstown RI 02852- June 25 – 26th – Free Admission.
