2021 Canadian International Air Show is back on

The CNE might not be back this year but the high flying acts that take place over the city of Toronto are returning Saturday-Sunday, September 4-6, 2021 from noon till 3pm. There will also be a practice on Friday from noon till 3pm. Centre Stage is in Lake Ontario just across from the Liberty Grand in Exhibition Place so the parks along Lake Shore provide great viewing along with parts of Ontario Place and Hanlans Beach on the Islands are your best bets for watching the air show, note no tickets are required to watch the show.

This year's show will also be live streamed so you can listen while you are watching on site, or you can stay at home, or the cottage and enjoy the show without having to head down to the waterfront. You can stream the show from the free 680 NEWS app - you can find a link to the iOS or Android app on the CIAS link here.

Their website says, "The Canadian International Air Show (CIAS) is committed to presenting Canada’s oldest continuous, running air show that is enjoyed annually by millions of fans on the shores of Lake Ontario. As with many air shows throughout North America, the COVID-19 pandemic has created uncertainty about the format of our air show. Based on our current information, we still plan to host an air show in 2021."

The aerial performances will be by the Canadian Snowbirds, F-35A Demo, Quicksilver – P51 Mustang, Gord Price, CH-146 Griffon, CC-130J Herc, Harvard II, PBY-5A and the CF-18 Hornet Demo. Photos by Joe Hamilton

Here is a copy of the CIAS news release; "The Canadian International Air Show is thrilled to announce the show will be returning to the skies over Lake Ontario in 2021!

August 2021, TORONTO – It took a team effort to achieve this goal and the Canadian International Air Show (CIAS) would like to thank it’s presenting sponsor Lockheed Martin, the Ontario Government, and the City of Toronto for their tireless hard work.

The annual Canadian International Air Show will take place on Saturday September 4th & Sunday September 5th from 12:00pm-3:00pm showing casing such iconic performers as the Canadian Forces Snowbirds & CF-18, United States Air Force F35, a P-51 Mustang and so much more.

In accordance with current social distancing guidelines, CIAS will not have their traditional ticketed Exclusive Airshow Zone in 2021. Instead, they will have their narration streamed live as a Thank you to all Canadians for the sacrifices they made during the past 18 months.

The Airshow asks attendees to follow current COVID guidelines. There is 14kms of public viewing space between the Humber Bridge & the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport to accommodate social distancing.
