The Festival of Flight is one of Newfoundland’s premier family festivals and offers a wide range of events for all ages. There’s the Opening Ceremonies with food, fun and entertainment, a demolition derby with car crashing thrills, a Kitchen Party, a Parade and so much more!

The Town of Gander’s Civic Holiday, “Gander Day” is one of the main events of the Festival. Taking place at Cobb’s Pond Rotary Park, Gander Day features a variety of traditional music performed by local entertainers, games of chance, food vendors and tons of fun. This fabulous day is capped off with a fantastic fireworks display that will leave you breathless!

The 2017 Festival of Flight was a great success again this year. The Town would like to thank all organizations, volunteers, and sponsors who helped to make it a great Festival.

The Dates for the Festival in 2018 are August 3rd–6th.
