DAYTON — Officials of the Vectren Dayton Air Show Presented by Kroger announced April 22 that due to coronavirus pandemic concerns, the 2020 show will be postponed until later this summer. The show was originally scheduled for June 27 and 28.
“The safety of our guests, volunteers and performers is our first and foremost priority. After close consultation with state and federal officials as well as other experts, we’ve determined it’s in the best interest of the community and show if we postpone the event until later this summer. I want to assure you we will do everything we can to hold a 2020 show,” United States Air and Trade Show Board of Trustees immediate past chair Michael Emoff said.
Show officials are in close contact with the Ohio Governor’s office, military, performers and other key organizations to determine the best weekend to reschedule the 2020 show. Once a decision on a date is made, a public announcement will be made and posted on the show’s website, www.daytonairshow.com. The overall objective is to have a safe and high-quality show with top military and civilian feature attractions.
Any tickets or specialty seating that have already been purchased for the 2020 show will be honored on the rescheduled dates. Officials of the air show thank the community’s support and patience during this difficult time.
In addition to the air show being postponed, it was announced this week that Maria Stein Countryfest has been cancelled. The event was originally going to be held June 26 through June 28.
