Arlington Skyfest is a popular community event taking place at Arlington Airport in northern Snohomish County. Arlington Skyfest attracts over 10,000 visitors to Arlington in August. The weekend festival features hot air balloons, an illuminated drone show, and plenty of big bombers on display. In addition to an air show and military vehicles, the public can enjoy live music and food trucks. A camping site is available at the festival grounds for around 300 campers.

On the ground, the public can see B-17, P-51, B-25, F4-U, and other impressive aircraft. Younger visitors can enjoy the kids' corner with various activities, bouncy houses, as well as watch a movie on a large screen before the main activities start. Flying stimulators and free introductory flights are available for youth. The highlights also include Camp Adams military display, flyovers, and helicopter tours.

Skyfest has been launched to replace the annual Arlington Fly-In, which was discontinued during the COVID-19 pandemic. Festivities culminate on Sunday, Community Fun Day at the airport. The evening program includes an airshow, an evening balloon glow, and a drone show.
