Welcome to America Fest!

We are excited to open our gates April 27th to our Okinawan neighbors to showcase our people, mission and culture in the spirit of friendship and cooperation.
Every day, the men and women of the U.S. military deliver decisive airpower in defense of Japan and regional security from Kadena Air Base: The Keystone of the Pacific. America Fest is an opportunity for the local community to meet U.S. service members, see advanced static aircraft up close, learn about our mission and experience American culture from the diverse people that serve at Kadena Air Base.
At this year's open house, we are excited to reopen our STEM hangar; an exhibit hall full of hands-on experiences designed to inspire youth to learn more about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, with demonstrations from units across Kadena. 
We hope guests will leave America Fest with a better understanding of Kadena Air Base's mission, and of the U.S. service members who serve alongside our Japanese allies here in Okinawa.
