Hear the rumble and boom of vintage tanks and artillery at the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum's sixth annual Tankfest Northwest event!

This action packed day boasts of fun for the entire family including military vehicle demonstrations, remote control tanks, a water balloon toss, scavenger hunt, face painting, bouncy house, tug-o-war, educational speaker, amazing food from some of the region’s top food trucks, and much more.

See amazing tanks, vehicles and artillery take to the arena in a fantastic display you can’t see anywhere else. After all, the newly named Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum is the largest operational Tank and Warbird Museum... on the West Coast. Be the first to purchase your souvenir FHCAM t-shirt or hat from our gift shop! New merchandise goes on sale at Tankfest NW.

What else is happening? Don’t miss the world’s most unique baby unveil where two lucky parents will have the gender of their baby revealed by a confetti blast from FHCAM’s Tanks.

If you need to rest your feet, jump into the FHCAM Theater to catch a showing of Disney’s Cars or hang out with turtles and other amphibious friends at the Reptile Man station.

This year’s Tankfest NW will have a larger vehicle demonstration arena, tall bleachers for viewing the show, never before seen tanks/vehicles, shorter lines, and the biggest news of all, this will be the first event hosted by the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum.
