Bring the whole family out to Hobby Airport for fun activities, tasty food, music, and prizes at the free HobbyFest 2018 on Saturday, April 21, 2018, from 10am to 4pm.
Take off for a usually closed-to-the-public section of Hobby Airport for the 26th annual HobbyFest – a lively, free daytime event that’s fun for the whole family.
Guests can enjoy complimentary food and drink (for the first 1,000 attendees) from three Hobby area food trucks, onsite poetry for attendees by the Inprint Poetry Buskers, DJ tunes, and an up close and personal look at both vintage and modern aircraft, emergency vehicles and more.
Everyone will also have a chance to win raffle prizes, including round-trip plane tickets and gift cards and take home goodie bags from vendor booths.
Kids’ Fun, Games & Activities
Free activities for the kids include face painting, moonwalks, rock climbing wall, princess makeovers and more.
Boy Scouts will even have the opportunity to acquire a variety of merit badges during the event, including aviation, crime prevention, emergency preparedness, and fire safety & prevention.
This year proceeds from event sponsorships will benefit local students in transportation-related fields.
HobbyFest 2018 will take place rain or shine. But don’t worry if the weather’s not perfect, most activities take place in the shelter of an airplane hangar.
