2021 Air Show…Cleared For Take-Off

The 2021 Cleveland National Air Show presented by Discount Drug Mart will take place Labor Day weekend (Sept. 4, 5 & 6) at Burke Lakefront Airport.  Planning and preparation have been proceeding for 2021 and special event approval has been granted by the City of Cleveland.

The 2021 Air Show will feature the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds.  Each show day, the six select Thunderbird demonstration pilots will put their distinct red, white and blue F-16 Falcon jet fighters through a choreographed 50 minute performance at speeds up to 500 mph and as close as three feet from each other.

Thank you to our fans for their understanding and patience during this unusual year.  We will be following COVID-19 health and safety protocols in accordance with current guidelines.  We are thrilled to be back on the tarmac.  The ground attractions may look a little bit different but we will still have the awesome flying you have come to expect.

The Air Show is a financially self-sufficient not-for-profit organization and ticket sales directly support event production costs for this Cleveland tradition.  Tickets will be available only in advance, online via the Air Show website– NO GATE SALES.  Fans are encouraged sign-up for the Air Show e-newsletter to receive alerts for when tickets go on sale, updates and more.
