Next September, for the first time in 15 years, the Canadian Forces (CF) Snowbirds aerial demonstration team will be performing in Peterborough.

The CF Snowbirds will perform during a two-day weekend air show on September 21 and 22, 2019 at the Peterborough Airport, which will also include other aerial demonstrations, static aircraft displays, local food vendors, and activities for kids.

The air show is part of the Peterborough Airport’s celebration of 50 years of operation in 2019.

“The 50th anniversary of the Peterborough Airport is a celebration of the city’s connection to the aviation sector and a tribute to the many people who have contributed to the airport’s success,” says Peterborough Mayor Diane Therrien.

“The city’s investment in the airport over the past decade has delivered significant economic growth for our region and this will be a great opportunity for the community to experience it.”

The CF Snowbirds represent the Canadian Army, Navy and Air Force and work as a team to bring thrilling performances to the Canadian public. Serving as ambassadors of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), the CF Snowbirds demonstrate the high level of skill, professionalism, teamwork, discipline and dedication inherent in the men and women of the CAF and they inspire the pursuit of excellence wherever they go in North America.

“We are excited to mark the 50th anniversary by presenting the CF Snowbirds to the public that have supported the airport over the past half century,” says airport general manager Trent Gervais. “About 16,000 people visited the Peterborough Airport during the Air Legends event in 2018 and we look forward to building on those numbers.”

More details about the air show, including the schedule, features, and ticket information, will be coming in 2019.
