The CenterPoint Energy Dayton Air Show, slated for July 10-11, 2021, will move to a drive-in format “to align with current health guidelines and ensure the safety of guests,” according to officials.
“It’s a unique and very exciting development,” organizers said. “The show will convert its spectator area to a drive-in theater-type parking lot. Guests will be able to purchase 20-foot x 20-foot Private Viewing Area using half the area to park their car and the other half to view the show in tailgate fashion.”
Ticket prices will start at $99 for up to six guests for general admission. Front row Platinum viewing areas for six guests will be $199. Restrooms will be located nearby and mobile concessions with food, beverages, and merchandise will be traveling the aisles if you would like to make a purchase. You also can bring in a cooler with food and beverages.
Guests, show staff, and volunteers will be required to wear an appropriate face covering and social distance when necessary. The show will provide hand sanitizers on the grounds and implement enhanced cleaning procedures in restrooms and other areas.
Headlining the show will be the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. 2021 marks the 47th anniversary of the event, held annually at the Dayton International Airport.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have the Thunderbirds in 2021 and introduce this incredible drive-in show to Dayton,” said Scott Buchanan, chairman of the United States Air & Trade Show Board of Trustees, producers of the show. “This new format is safe and will bring the utmost in convenience to our guests.”
Show attendance will also be reduced and some areas closed to accommodate current health guidelines. Specialty seating areas will not be available
