Join us as we celebrate a Pan Am Carnival this November in camaraderie with our Pan Am family, friends, and airline enthusiasts.

Help keep the great spirit of Pan Am alive!

We kick off the gala weekend with the long planned dedication event of the Marine Air Terminal commemorating the historic relationship with Pan Am.  The dedication event will be a collaborative hosting between the Pan Am Historical Foundation and the Pan Am Museum Foundation.

Then join us on Saturday as we celebrate our annual gala themed, “Flying Down to Rio”. In a year dominated by COVID-19, our ability to “reach out and touch someone” was challenged as the lives of so many of us were touched by adversity, tragedy, and hardship. Through it all, the creativity and determination of our colleagues coupled with your continued support has helped us to ensure that the Pan Am Museum would survive.

So, come for a weekend of Pan Am nostalgia, dancing, and socializing at two great events, the dedication event and this year’s gala “Flying Down to Rio”.[/vc_column_text][eltdf_elements_holder holder_full_height=”no” number_of_columns=”one-column” switch_to_one_column=”” alignment_one_column=””][eltdf_elements_holder_item][eltdf_icon_with_text type=”icon-left” icon_pack=”dripicons” dripicon=”dripicons-calendar” title_tag=”h4″ target=”_blank” custom_icon_size=”14px” icon_color=”#0983c7″ title=”Friday, November 11th, 2022″ title_color=”#0983c7″ text=”Dedication begins at 7:30 p.m.
