Livermore Airport

Annual Airport Open House & Air Show

Due to COVID-19 restrictions on large gatherings our 2020 Airport Open House & Air Show has been canceled.

It is with deep regret that we must announce the canceling of the 24th Annual Airport Open House and Air Show scheduled for October 3, 2020. With businesses closed and/or significant losses in revenue, at this time we cannot count on the same level of sponsorship that we have received in the past.  This also includes our anticipated revenues from our extremely successful Hot Dog Thursdays that have now been canceled.  We also anticipate a significant reduction in total airport revenue next fiscal year, and the savings from the event will assist in allowing us to maintain the same level of airport services.  As you may recall, we normally start the planning process for the event in earnest this month which is why we are making the decision now.  Please know the decision to cancel this year's event was not made lightly and we have every intention on having the Open House and Air Show in 2021, coming back even stronger.  

Thank you for your understanding and please stay safe.

Airport Open House:  Held annually on the first Saturday of October from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Free admittance. Plenty of free parking.  We hope you will attend!
