The Hayward Executive Airport will hold its annual Open House on Sunday, Sept. 24, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Families and aviation lovers are invited to this free event, which will feature a variety of entertainment for people of all ages.  

The Open House will include static aircraft displays, police and fire vehicles and equipment, and classic cars. Local restaurants and vendors also will be onsite selling food and drinks.  

The airport started hosting the annual Open House in 2012, with assistance from aircraft owners and other stakeholders. The popularity of the event quickly grew, with thousands of community members from Hayward, the greater the Bay Area and beyond attending year after year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Open House was canceled in 2020 and 2021.  

Open House admission and parking are free. To learn more, go to
