Reach New Heights During the Canadian International Air Show

The 73rd annual air show returns to Toronto’s waterfront Labour Day weekend

Another iconic Toronto summer moment is back! The Canadian International Air Show officially announced its return to Toronto’s waterfront over the Labour Day weekend from September 3-5, 2022.

EDIT: As of August 29, 2022 the Snowbirds will no longer be part of the Air Show due to an incident involving one of its aircrafts earlier this month. It has no been cleared in time to participate.

For the past 73 years, The Canadian International Air Show has brought Aviation history to life by showcasing modern military jets and vintage warbirds in an action-packed air display that highlights the marvel of flight and honours all Air Force veterans.

“Whether you are an aviation enthusiast or a first-timer to the show, there is something unique for everyone to enjoy. Our team is thrilled to bring back the full Canadian International Air Show experience to Toronto’s waterfront to ring in the final days of summer.”
