The City of Owensboro is excited to announce the return of the USAF Thunderbirds Demonstration Team to the 2023 Owensboro Air Show the weekend of September 15-17, 2023.

“We are thrilled to be able to announce the Thunderbirds team’s return to Owensboro for our 2023 Air Show,” said Public Events Director, Tim Ross. “We have been really fortunate in Owensboro to have tremendous performer lineups for each of our air shows. The Thunderbirds team receives hundreds of requests for their demonstration every year, yet they select less than 30 cities annually to perform. For Owensboro to be selected again speaks to the incredible support and community involvement the military teams experience when they are in town. For the premier demonstration team in the world to select Owensboro again for their show schedule in 2023 is something our city should be really proud of.”

The 2023 Owensboro Air Show weekend will again feature a wide range of aircraft on display and aerial demonstrations at the Owensboro-Daviess County Regional Airport on Friday evening, September 15. On Saturday and Sunday, September 16-17, 2023, the focus returns to the Owensboro riverfront for an air show that will feature some of the best civilian and military demonstrations in the world.

The City of Owensboro has decided not to host an air show in 2022. We will have more information in the coming months about other signature events happening in 2022.
