Arctic Thunder Open House
In the spirit of military service, Arctic Thunder Open House is an event hosted by Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson to give back to the local community. We open our doors every other year and share our unique life and culture with a community who contributes so much to our ability to engage globally and protect locally.
In years previous, this prodigious event has seen attendance in upwards of 300,000 people. We will have over 40 static displays spanning 30 acres containing inventory from around the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security. Additionally, we are anticipating having over 7 different international partners participating in some capacity. With a planned 7 hours of flying activities, one can look forward to 6 military aerial demonstrations, 8 civilian aerial demonstrations and Joint Force demonstrations.
