Warbirds are the Festival’s foundation, and 2018 will be no different. Guests can experience WWII planes up close in multiple ways—either via tour, an incredible ride flight, or even low passes overhead throughout the weekend and especially during a two-hour aerial demonstration every afternoon.

What You Need To Know
Access to dockside tours of PT-305 are included in your general-admission ticket. Please go to the main ticketing gate where you entered to receive your wristband. There will be shuttles running on continuous loops to the PT-305 boathouse and back to the main entrance of the show. This year will feature a dedicated air show from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., the first time we are closing the airspace to put on an airshow! Several flybys from military aircraft are planned, and you will see WWII planes flying all day. The Main Showcase stage located by the tarmac will be front and center all weekend for interviews, flying narration, and of course the daily airshow itself each day. There is no reserved seating included with the general-admission ticket. There is limited seating in the Wedell Hangar, and guests are invited to bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit. However, tents and awnings of any kind are NOT permitted.
