Welcome to AmericaFest! アメリカフェストへようこそ!


I’m proud to announce we will be opening up Kadena Air Base for our friends and neighbors April 25th for AmericaFest 2020.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the U.S.-Japan Alliance, which we are proud to celebrate. As friends, partners, and allies, our Alliance is ironclad – and it continues to grow every day. In working together, we ensure the strength of the Alliance, the defense of Japan, and the stability, security, and prosperity of a free and open Indo-Pacific.

We have an exciting line-up of events for AmericaFest 2020.  Our hope is for you to enjoy your time with us, learn more about what we do, and make memories that will last for years to come.

From all of us at Team Kadena, thank you for your enduring friendship and we look forward to seeing you in April!

Brig. Gen. Joel Carey
Commander, 18th Wing
