Did they cancel it to be safe? or was there a reason?
They cancelled it to be safe. Here's the message from the Wildwood Airshow website.
Dear Wildwood Airshow Attendees,



Out of an abundance of caution, the Wildwood Airshow regrettably will cancel the upcoming June 5-7, 2020 airshow in order to reduce the risk of transmitting COVID-19 coronavirus. The cancellation comes at the guidance of federal, local, and state health officials who are looking to mitigate health risks.



We extend our sincere appreciation to all of you who were primed to celebrate this inaugural airshow with us this June. As disappointing as this decision is to all of our team, our priority continues to be the health and safety of our community during this unprecedented time.



Please feel free to reach out to [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns with your ticket refund. You will receive an email shortly with your refund information from EventBrite.



Our thanks for your understanding and support through these difficult times.



Sincerely,

The Wildwood Airshow

Starting to appear that Selfridge might fall victim to cancellations because of the coronavirus as Whiteman AFB announced it's cancellation of their airshow which was scheduled to be the weekend after June 6th and 7th. Tough situation we're all in right now.

Now that shows are cancelled through the end of May, do we think this show will be next? If it was up to me, I'd wait a month to see how the situation is going to make a decision. I think cancelling the show in the middle of March for a show in June is just a little too soon imo. Thoughts?
As of today, Selfridge is still ON. A keen eye is being kept on how the situation will unfold over the next two months. This may include some changes in the lineup as schedules evolve due to the crisis. As you all know, this is an extremely fluid situation. Just taking it one day at a time.

The Detroit Auto Show has been cancelled and that is the week after the Selfridge Air Show, I wonder if they will fall victim.

Things may have changed in a week, but all three North American Jet Teams stated previously they would be ready when shows resume. However, that was with the restrictions in place at that time and with information known at that time. As of now, the Snowbirds are still anticipated to perform but that could still change as we all navigate through the coming weeks. It all depends on when they resume training.

Officially cancelled. Due to military mobilization during the outbreak, even if things are done or close to being done by June, focus right now is on fighting the pandemic from an Air Guard standpoint. Next show is planned for July 2022.

I figured that would probably be the case, but that doesn't make it any less disappointing. Too bad, but totally understandable.
