Sacramento Region, CA (MPG) – The California Capital Airshow takes off this weekend! If ever there was a family fun event to see, this is it. With many changes being made to make it even more friendly for the entire family, this weekend-long show of amazing displays, acrobatics and learning opportunities makes it a perfect event to get the kids excited about the world of aeronautics.

The Airshow performances begin at noon each day, Saturday and Sunday, and run to 4:00 pm. Gates open at 9:00. Come early to get a great view.

The CCA has worked hard to make the airshow more family friendly every year. New for 2017, each Adult General Admission ticket includes 4 FREE Youth/Children (ages 15 and under) tickets. Also, children 5 years old and under are free for General Admission tickets only. If more children are attending than what is covered with purchased Adult General Tickets, you will need to purchase Youth/Child’s tickets. For all other ticket options (Mather Club (formerly Shaded Seating), Flight Line Club, Capital Club) a ticket is required for ages 2 and up. Please check for additional information and current ticket prices.

Seating is not included with General Admission tickets so please feel free to bring a blanket or lawn chair to sit on. Parking is $10. Only cash will be accepted for parking. The fee for each vehicle does not include exit and re-entry.
