The coronavirus pandemic has forced the postponement of the Vectren-Dayton Air Show.
Officials of the Dayton Air Show announced today that due to coronavirus pandemic concerns, it will postpone the 2020 show until later this summer. The event was originally scheduled for June 27th and 28th.
"The safety of our guests, volunteers and performers is our first and foremost priority," Michael Emoff, U.S. Air and Trade Show Board of Trustees' immediate past chair said in a statement. "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," Emoff said. "I want to assure you we will do everything we can to hold a 2020 show."
Show officials said that they 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.
Tickets or specialty seating that have already been purchased for the 2020 show will be honored on the rescheduled dates.
