California Capital Evening Airshow | MATHER AIRPORT, SACRAMENTO

July 13 & 14, 2024

Italy's Frecce Tricolori & USAF Thunderbirds

Fly-In To The Show

Greetings fellow aviators!

We wanted to reach out and share some exciting news!

For the first time in 32 years, Frecce Tricolori, the Italian Air force jet demonstration team, will be touring North America to celebrate the Royal Canadian Air Force’s 100th anniversary. Sacramento is lucky to host the team for the only full demonstration in the West this July 13-14. Of course, we are excited to be a part of such a unique opportunity, but moving our dates to mid-summer led us to make some temporary changes to the Airshow.

First, we are bringing back the night show! This allows us to hold our event later in the day and deliver pyrotechnics, fireworks, and walls of fire to thrill the crowds after the jets land. The show is moving from our normal timing to one that takes place later in the day, into sunset and dark allowing for slightly cooler temperatures. Parking gates will open at 3:30pm and flying performances will begin at 6pm and conclude at 10pm.

Second, we are reducing the footprint of our massive display ramp — just for this year. This will allow us enough room in our restricted areas for the increase in jets and international support aircraft, as well as ample security personnel to protect our valued guests and plenty of light towers to send everyone home when the show concludes.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate fly-in aircraft for the 2024 Airshow and are limiting our displays to military and agency aircraft. Not only do we LOVE general aviation pilots, but we ARE general aviation pilots. We hope you appreciate CCA bringing this unforgettable experience to our fans. We plan to ‘return to normal’ next year with a full ramp size and traditional showtimes.

We hope you join us this year for something truly special. Thank you for your support!
