Greetings Airfest Fans -

It was recently reported and incorrectly posted on our event page that the upcoming Airfest scheduled for June 12 - 13 is a FREE event. This is not accurate, and there will be fees associated with tickets to help us support the event. We apologize for any confusion as we had not updated ticket pricing due to the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19.

Our Board and dedicated volunteers continue to work hard towards bringing this event back to our community in a safe manner with the US Navy Blue Angels.

Please stay tuned for more details regarding the show while we coordinate the event with local and federal officials. We can't wait to welcome back the Blue Angels to the Coulee Region!

F-35A Demo Team not coming to La Crosse. Not sure if the cross off means that the itself is cancelled or if it's just the F-35A Demo Team cancelling their appearance.

According to this article, the next time La Crosse, Wisconsin puts on another airshow after this year won't be until 2024.
