Photo ID for Adults

We recommend photo IDs for the adults that would like to enjoy adult beverages. Servers are required to check everyone’s ID.

Please Arrive “ON TIME”

If you’d like to get to the airshow early – please arrive as close to the gate/airshow open times as possible. Though it might seem completely counterintuitive, arriving at the airshow show early actually slows down traffic flow onto the air show grounds. The “ON TIME” recommendation is for all ticket types. Thank you!

Have Your Tickets Ready to Scan

Please have your ticket (printed bar code or smartphone) ready to scan to minimize gate entry times. Make sure you click on “VIEW MY TICKETS” (found in your ticket purchase confirmation email) and either save OR print your tickets. Just before you get to the scanning gates, it helps the scanners if you can increase your smartphone screen brightness for scanning.

Frequently Asked Airshow Questions:

Here are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions that people have been asking:
We’ll update these questions and answer as we get closer to the show.

We love all pets, but only clearly identified service animals are allowed on airshow grounds.

As in previous years, we’ll ensure that you get to see an airshow and you are happy with the experience!

You are welcome to leave the airshow at any time, including early – but re-entrance is not permitted. After most people arrive at the show, the entrance lanes are reversed to exit lanes. This is done to ensure that everyone gets home as quickly as possible. The only disadvantage is that re-entry is not permitted.



Our goal is to provide you the best air show experience possible at a range of price points. Ticket types include everything from an affordable day of aviation thrills for the whole family to an premium air show experience. There’s something for everyone!

Service Fees: Some ticket types include a nominal service fee. All ticket transactions and payment are processed through a industry-standard secure online interface.

Please note: All sales are final and no refunds can be offered.

A Note on Performers:
Aircraft and performers are subject to change without notice, due to operational considerations. If anything changes, we will do our best to let you know. Thank you!
