Boundary Bay Airshow

The Boundary Bay Airshow features airplanes, stunt planes and family-friendly fun in July at Boundary Bay Airport in Delta. Admission is free.

In 2023 the event took place on Saturday, July 22nd.

The date for the show’s return in 2024 is still to be confirmed.


The Boundary Bay Airshow

Unlike the Abbotsford International Airshow, the airshow in Delta is free to attend. Chilliwack Flight Fest is also free. The Abbotsford event happened on August 11th to 13th in 2023. The Chilliwack one was the following weekend, on the Saturday and Sunday of August 19th and 20th. The event in Delta, is just a one-day event, on a weekend in the middle of July.
