Blackpool Air Show

Blackpool Air Show 2021

One of the UK’s biggest and best FREE airshows, Blackpool Air Show was scheduled to return for 2021 across the weekend of the 7th and 8th August

Unfortunately this years show has been CANCELLED – as confirmed by VisitBlackpool and Blackpool Council  

Full details of the 2 day festival of all things aircraft, stunts and flying will be announced in due course once dates are confirmed for 2022

The festival usually features stalls and ground displays from the likes of the RAF, Blackpool Life Boat and a real carnival event – and is all set to return in 2022

The best views are from North Promenade – with the displays mostly taking place over the Irish sea infront of the Blackpool Tower between the Central Pier and North Pier. The Viva Vegas Diner & Bar offers one of the best locations on the prom to sit and watch the show whilst enjoying a drink, or a snack. You can book a table here.

If you are unable to make the show, you may be able to watch some of the displays on our live webcam – located on the roof, overlooking the promenade.

Previous Blackpool Air Shows

The history of the Blackpool Air show dates back over 100 years to 1909, when it was first held at Blackpool Airport showcasing some of the first planes ever built. This makes the Blackpool Air Show one of the longest running in the World!

Sadly, the 2020 show was cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. But our friends at VisitBlackpool and Live Blackpool compiled some videos of previous displays below.
