Abbotsford International Airshow is an aeronautics spectacle that brings thousands to the area each year. The event, held the second weekend of August at Abbotsford International Airport, has been a tadition since 1962.
That very first airshow attracted 15,000 people, so you can imagine how many show up now. Officials say more than 125,000, which makes it not only the largest airshow in Canada but also on the North American West Coast! Anything that can consistently draw a crowd of that size must be pretty amazing and that is certainly true of the Abbotsford International Airshow.
Attendees to the show are treated to some of the most jaw-dropping, hair-raising, aeronautic acrobats and derring-do you can imagine. There are also lots of great things to see and do on the ground. Static exhibits, special attractions, activities for young and old, games, food, drink, prizes and more all add to the festival-like atmosphere of the airshow.
