2020 KC Air Show Postponed
July 16, 2020

The air show has made the difficult decision to postpone our show scheduled for Sept 5-6,2020 at New Century AirCenter featuring the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds due to ongoing COVID-19 safety concerns and restrictions. The event has been rescheduled to July 3-4, 2021 at New Century AirCenter and will feature the U.S. Navy Blue Angels as our headliner along with a star-studded lineup of performers, many of whom were scheduled to appear at this September's event. Any tickets or special seating that has already been purchased for the September 2020 show will be honored at the 2021 show. 

Safety has always been the top priority for the KC Air Show. Safety concerns and restrictions related to COVID-19 have caused the cancellation or postponement of most air shows across North America in 2020. The U.S. military continues to have restrictions on non-essential travel, and state restrictions on large group gatherings have forced all air shows scheduled prior to June 30 to postpone or cancel. Many shows later in the year have also cancelled or postponed their events until next year. The KC Air Show team made a number of changes to adapt to this year's unique environment, however with the recent COVID-19 resurgence determined it was not feasible to hold the show in September.


You can visit the show's web site, www.KCAirShow.org for ticket information as well as answers to frequently asked questions.
