Weston Air Festival started as a one-day show before becoming a whole weekend event on Weston Seafront in 2014. Since then it has attracted thousands of spectators to watch incredible air displays over Weston Bay.

The event usually marks Armed Forces Day with a selection of entertainment on the Weston Beach Lawns to celebrate the contribution made by our armed forces.

The event is organised by North Somerset Council, Weston Super Mare Town Council and Culture Weston.

 A WEEKEND OF ENTERTAINMENT

As well as a weekend of outstanding entertainment in the sky, Weston Air Festival offers airshow fans the chance to enjoy a whole host of family-friendly fun along the seafront and Beach Lawns and once again incorporates the town’s Armed Forces Day celebrations.

The event village will feature exhibition stands, food stalls, family activities and fairgrounds, as well as the chance to meet RAF crews up close and personal, ensuring there’s plenty to see and do at ground level.
