All about the Kansas City Air Show

Over the years, The Kansas City Air Show has become a wildly popular air show with Midwest audiences that takes place in Kansas City MO at the Wheeler Downtown Airport.

Officially known as the KC Aviation & Airshow, it traditionally kicked off each summer in late August.

Due to sequestration and government budget cuts, the Kansas City Air Show was cancelled in 2013. Reorganizing in 2014, the next Kansas City Air Show was rescheduled for 2015. That year, the US Navy Blue Angels -- along with a lineup of other military and civilian performers -- wowed crowds of thousands who attended.

Like most big events, the Kansas City Air Show still usually has a number of attractions and features on the ground that make it an entertaining way to spend the day — but the real attraction is, of course, the planes!

In the past, the Kansas City Air Show featured a wide variety of flying entertainment, including thunderous appearances by the US Navy Blue Angels and the US Air Force Thunderbirds, along with mock dog fights between planes, and aerobatic stunt men and women with highly modified planes capable of stunning maneuvers.

Kansas City Air Show tickets and parking info

Buy tickets to the Kansas City Air Show at their website, or by phone at Etix. Prices traditionally range from $8.50 for general admission to $175 for premium box seats. All tickets are usually much cheaper if you purchase tickets early rather than on show days at the gate. Kids 5 years of age or younger are admitted free if accompanied by an adult.

Parking at the air show grounds is free, but organizers encouraged people to take advantage of park and ride shuttle bus transit services, which deliver people directly to the front gates.

What to bring

If purchasing general admission tickets, it's standing room only. So bring a blanket or lawn chair to sit back and enjoy the show! Those with sensitive hearing may also want to bring earplugs since some of the low-flying stunt planes (especially when the Blue Angels are in town) can be LOUD.
