North Little Rock Airshow barrel rolls into North Little Rock this October

After a six-year hiatus, the North Little Rock Airshow will return to North Little Rock Municipal Airport at 8200 Remount Road on Saturday, October 22, 2022.

“The Airshow is a point of pride for the airport and the city of North Little Rock,” said Clay Rogers, Director of the North Little Rock Municipal Airport. “We’re excited to bring it back for families with some new additions like pre-purchasing tickets online and a more robust kids’ area.”

The North Little Rock Airshow features intense, entertaining aerial demonstrations by nationally recognized aerial acts as well as a jet truck, parachute team, military aircraft and equipment, scale model aircraft demonstrations, and more! A kid’s zone will include bounce houses and STEM projects and activities with the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub and other local agencies.

An event schedule as well as ticket information will be available soon. The airport is currently still seeking sponsorships, volunteers, and community involvement for the Airshow; interested parties can email airshownlr@gmail.com for more information.
