See below for details about how to get to the Dulles Day Festival & Plane Pull®.
Dulles Airport will have a traffic plan in place to maximize access to the free Plane Pull event lot while maintaining routes for airline passengers to reach their flights on time. Electronic signs and personnel will be deployed to keep the traffic moving. Due to the airport roadway configuration, the Dulles Airport Access Highway will likely be the best approach route. Check out our driving map (COMMING SOON!) for added assistance.
