Event description
The mission of the annual HobbyFest event is to jointly promote, through the efforts of the Hobby Area District; aviation awareness and commerce throughout the surrounding Hobby Airport community and greater Houston, for the benefit of charitable aviation-related causes.
Current plans call for HobbyFest to benefit, in part, the Allen T. Johnson Memorial Scholarship, in honor of the memory of Allen T. Johnson, who made significant contributions to the Greater Hobby Area Chamber of Commerce and the Gulfway-Hobby Airport Rotary Club.
Purpose:

Community and business outreach
Award scholarships to local students
Recognition of internal and external stakeholders
Give the surrounding community and expanded view into the world of aviation
Have fun!

Goal:
To give back and educate the local community, through celebration, about the Hobby area.
Scholarships: Each event year, the Allen T. Johnson Memorial Scholarship Committee sends out a call for abstracts, inviting high school juniors and seniors and college students. In 2018, we awarded $12,500 in scholarships. For the past ten years we have awarded nearly $60,000 in scholarships.
