Abbotsford Airshow’s much-anticipated return begins

August 5, 2022

For the first time since the pandemic began, the beloved Abbotsford Airshow is back.

Friday marks the 60th anniversary of the popular event.

“The airshow’s event grounds and attractions are open (Friday), inviting spectators to wander more than 300,000 square feet of static aircraft displays, and enjoy the McDonald’s KidsZone adventure playground,” airshow staff said.

The event covers all the bases, including “more than 30 food trucks offering everything from festival classics like burgers and mini-donuts to exotic cuisines from around the world.”

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds won’t be flying in this year’s show after one of their planes was damaged during a takeoff earlier this week in Fort St. John.

Instead, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will be among this year’s headline performers.
