The Rhode Island National Guard Open House and Airshow was established in 1991 as a major community event that everyone from the region could be proud of and enjoy. The airshow offers the finest aerial and static displays along with activities for people of all ages. Our show has operated for 26 consecutive years.
From its inception the show has operated with a simple creed; put on a world class show featuring only the best aircraft and pilots and operate the show totally for the benefit of the community. To date, contributions to local charities exceed $2,000,000. The Hasbro Children’s Hospital is our largest benefactor and has received over $1,300,000 since we began.
Admission to the show is absolutely FREE! A voluntary $10 parking donation is collected at all entrances to support the Hasbro Children's Hospital.
