An amazing festival, featuring aircraft performances, static displays, rides, and more fun activities for the whole family

OCIA Air Show and Open House is a wonderful aviation festival, which takes place at Oakland County International Airport (OCIA) in Waterford, Michigan. The main focus of the show belongs to aerobatic performances. Yet, the event also features a static display of the aircraft and military support vehicles.
