Edmonton Airshow Cancelled
Edmonton Airshow UPDATE August 15, 2019
While we continue to deal with the cancellation, we have been very grateful for the positive response of the fans, performers, partners and suppliers. It is with that in mind that while work is happening on the 2019 show, we are pleased to announce the 2020 Edmonton Airshow will go Aug 14, 15 16 at Villeneuve Airport.
We have already secured many of the performers including the Vampire Jet, Acemaker Jet, Yellow Thunder, Jackie B, The Erickson collection, the Historic Flight Foundation and we are honoured that the USAF has assured us they will come back as well. We cannot confirm the team or teams yet but we are confident it will be spectacular. We also are in talks with the RCAF to get our dates in their calendar as well.
In addition, we are working on other special events for aviation fans in Sept and Oct which we hope to announce soon. Our ticket holders will be the first to know.
Edmonton Airshow organizers had no choice but to cancel the 2019 edition of the airshow at Villeneuve Airport due to the persistent wet weather that saturated the fields causing significant operational and safety concerns.
Update on Ticket Exhanges / Refunds
Thank you for your patience as we move forward. Currently, we are dealing with our insurance adjuster. Meetings started August 13, and will run to the rest of the week. Once we get all the information back from our insurance provider, we can start processing exchanged tickets for 2020, or your refund.
Given that this is a Force Majeure event, we need to ensure the process is systematic, automated, traceable, and auditable. We will update by the website and email distribution as things progress. We are making this move as fast as we can, while still maintaining the integrity of the system end of your tickets. We will communicate more information as it becomes available.
Normally, events of this kind have a no refund policy. We are amending that policy and are offering exchanges and refunds because we had to cancel so far in advance. We would like you to come back next year. We are working on appreciation events both this year and for next year’s Airshow for ticket holders that stay with us.
