Toronto Air Show schedule and times for 2023

The 2023 Toronto Air Show returns to the city this weekend for a three-day extravaganza of aviation above the waterfront, including screeching military jets, retro warplanes, exciting aerobatic manoeuvres, and much more.

Highlights at the 74th annual Canadian International Air Show include a thrilling display performed by the US Navy Blue Angels in their F/A-18 Super Hornets — the team's first Toronto appearance in 14 years — as well as the annual Canadian Forces Snowbirds performance known to draw crowds.

Other must-sees at this year's Air Show include performances from the RCAF CF-18 Demonstration Team, the 81-year-old Gord Price flying the Yak-50 aerobatic plane, as well as a heritage flight featuring a World War II-era P-51 Mustang.

Key dates and times

The Air Show runs throughout the Labour Day weekend, from Saturday, September 2 through Monday, September 4, with performances from 12 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on each of the three days.
