Free Riverside Airshow takes to the sunny skies on Saturday

The City of Riverside proudly presents the Riverside Airport Open House & Airshow on Saturday, April 1. Now in its 25th year, the airshow continues to be one of the city’s two largest family entertainment events.

This one-day show attracts 90,000 spectators to see the most exciting aerial performers in the business today. The airshow also features more than 200 acres of aircraft and helicopter displays.

Walk the “ramp” lined with classic military aircraft and meet the performers. And the best part is the admission is FREE!
