One of the biggest events of the year has been confirmed for Saturday July 3rd, 2021.
“Last year Freedom Fest was cancelled thanks to Covid, but planes will fly and the bands will play in 2021. This is a big fly-In with warbird formations, demonstrations and walk around static displays” said Flagler Executive Airport Director Roy Sieger.
Over 50 military and vintage aircraft have participated in past years. Already signed up for 2021 is a B-25 bomber.
"It's a great chance for area families to see dozens of aircraft up close, talk to the pilots and take pictures. The pilots love meeting people and telling their stories.” Sieger said.
The gates will open at 10am with official welcome and opening ceremonies at noon. A unique feature of Freedom Fest is the “all planes in the air fly-by parade.”
A rare opportunity for everybody to take close up photos and videos of aircraft in flight. Freedom Fest is a 6 year partnership with Flagler Broadcasting and its 6 local radio stations who are in charge of marketing, vendors, sponsors and entertainment.
On the concert stage this year, country, Mo-Town and a Bon Jovi Tribute will entertain from 3pm –9pm.
The City Of Palm Coast will shoot their annual fireworks across the street this year, adding to the Freedom Fest finale.
Palm Coast & The Flagler Beaches Amy Lukasik said, “Freedom Fest is by far one of the biggest local events of the year. It fills hotel rooms and highlights one of our greatest assets, the Flagler Executive Airport.”
David Ayres, Flagler Broadcasting’s VP/GM says "Freedom Fest is a fun family day that brings us all together. With free admission and parking at FPC, it’s a day everybody can safely enjoy since its outside and plenty of room for social distancing.”
