The very beginning of the Aviation Festival in Degumnieki can be dated by year 2011 – it was organized then as a private aviation event, yet two planes flying and staying at night at Degumnieki airfield attracted considerable attention from the local people and officials of Ošupe parish, therefore already in 2012 the first public aviation event was organized and widely attended at Degumnieki airfield, thus it has become a good annual tradition and every year prepares thrilling and varied programme for those interested.
