Evergreen Aviation Museum
The 2017 Saito Karate Do Classic will hold its competition inside the evergreen space museum right under the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. This impressive venue will be a unique backdrop for this fun event. We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to use this venue. We will be running 4 matted rings all day to help expedite competition and give the passionate spectators a good show. We cannot wait to see you at our event.
With displays ranging from the elegant aeronautic designs of two unknown bike mechanics – Orville and Wilbur Wright – to an actual Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird that can fly at speeds of over 2,000 miles per hour – the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum located in McMinnville, Oregon, has a little something for everyone.
The centerpiece of these aeronautic breakthroughs is the original Spruce Goose. Built entirely of wood due to wartime restrictions on metals, this massive airplane stands as a symbol of American industry during World War II.
Founded in the memory of Captain Michael King Smith, our exhibits celebrate the lives of innovators, pilots, and veterans who courageously pioneered flight in these remarkable machines. Plan a visit and learn more about the museum as you immerse yourself in history with our ever-expanding attractions and amenities.
Don’t forget about the Wings and Waves Water Park located on the same campus.
Evergreen Wings & Waves Waterpark is an indoor, all-season educational waterpark that includes ten waterslides (ranging from slides for the little ones to slides for daredevils), a wave pool and a hands-on museum dedicated to teaching students about the power of water. Slide out of a real Boeing 747 aircraft sitting on the roof, and enjoy a day of educational fun!
