Gig Harbor Wings & Wheels

Wings & Wheels will be back for a sixth year in 2016 on the Gig Harbor side of the Narrows Bridge, at the Tacoma Narrows Airport.

It's an aviation event with a car show - featuring bi-plane rides, amazing cars and aircraft, live music and the Smoke 'N' Thunder Jet Dragster making a 300 mph run down the runway, plus three hours of aerial demonstrations and displays, featuring warbirds and aerobatic airplanes.

Aircraft will FLY-IN and be on static display. You'll thrill to the roar of the engines as some fly over and you'll have the opportunity to see beautiful aircraft up close. Vendors, military displays, and entertainment will be going on throughout the day.


  • Adults 18 and older: $15
  • Seniors and Military ID card holders: $10
  • Kids 6 to 17: $5
  • Kids 5 and Under: FREE

Due to the limited parking available at the Tacoma Narrows Airport, parking will be available for those who have purchased their tickets online in advance of the event. While there may be some spots left on the day of the event, we would highly recommend to take advantage of our offsite parking. Satellite parking will be available at St. Anthony's Family Medicine parking lot (4700 Point Fosdick Drive NW, Gig Harbor, WA 98335, click for map), across the street from Uptown. The shuttle buses will be running to/from the event every 15 minutes starting at 10:45am with the last bus leaving the Tacoma Narrows Airport at 4:30pm.

Tickets available are limited. Buy your online tickets early to be sure you don't miss out!
