The Airshow of the Cascades is an annual event held in August at the Madras Municipal Airport in Central Oregon. The event draws in thousands of people with over a hundred different aircraft on display, as well as several different family-friendly activities throughout the entire weekend. The airshow provides the crowd with an up close and personal experience with a spectacular scenic backdrop that brings out the kid in all of us. Their partnership with the Erickson Aircraft Collection allows visitors free entry to their museum, puts vintage aircraft out on display, and Warbirds in the air. The two-day event takes place in Madras, OR and includes the Les Schwab Car Show, glider and helicopter rides, antique airplane displays, aerobatic performances and meet-and-greets, motocross performances, fireworks, great food, live music, and so much more. Guests can purchase tickets ahead of time and can camp out on the grounds for an additional fee.
