Dulles Day Festival & Plane Pull

September 14  11:00am –4:00pm

Dulles Airport

The Dulles Day Festival & Plane Pull® is Special Olympics Virginia’s “heaviest” fundraiser, pitting teams of 25 against one another to see who can pull an 82-ton FedEx Airbus A320 or United Boeing 757 airplane 12 feet the fastest. Teams must raise a minimum of $2000 to participate and all proceeds help Special Olympics Virginia provide year-round training and athletic competition to more than 23,000 athletes of all ages.

If pulling a plane seems just a bit beyond your reach – how about a truck? The Kids Truck Pull pits teams of children against a big red 123JUNK truck; the team who pulls the truck 12 feet the fastest wins. Each child must raise a minimum of $10 to compete and will receive a T-shirt.

Still not convinced you’ve got the muscles for the job? Join us as a volunteer, an event sponsor, an event exhibitor… or as a “fan” of Special Olympics Virginia. The Dulles Day Festival & Plane Pull®, presented by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority and United Airlines, also features live music, a car show, military and civilian aircraft displays, business exhibits, and children’s games and entertainment. Event admission and parking are free. Gates open at 10:30 am and close at 3:15 pm. Events begins at 11 am and run to 4 pm. The last bus from the parking lot will leave at 3 pm. Please note: no backpacks, coolers, firearms, weapons or pets, unless service animals, will be allowed.
