California Capital Airshow Ready for Takeoff

Buckle up, thrill-seekers! The California Capital Airshow (CCA), a high-flying extravaganza brought to you by Sacramento County and the City of Rancho Cordova, is revving its engines and ready for takeoff!

Mark your calendars for September 23 and 24, 2023, because Mather Airport in Sacramento is about to become the epicenter of aviation excitement. Get ready for two days jam-packed with jaw-dropping aerial displays, courtesy of sensational airborne performers, from noon to 4 p.m. each day. And guess who’s headlining the grand finale? None other than the thrilling United States Air Force Thunderbirds jet demo team!

But wait, there’s more! Between those heart-pounding flights, you’ll have the chance to roam a staggering 171 miles of static aircraft displays and exhibitor booths. It’s an aviation wonderland from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

Tickets are still available for this aviation extravaganza. General Admission starts at a mere $42.50 (and kiddos under 15 fly free!), while VIP experiences are available for those who crave a little extra pampering.

New this year is “The Hangar Chalet,” a venue within the festival where attendees will receive a commemorative tasting glass and seven tasters from select local brewers and distillers from the Rancho Cordova Barrel District.

The 2023 California Capital Airshow offers a host of new attractions and rare opportunities to meet performers up close. Kick off the festivities at the Village Green in Rancho Cordova on September 22, where you can meet the USAF Thunderbirds, groove to live beats and indulge in scrumptious delights from food trucks. It’s a party for the whole community!

This isn’t just a show, folks. It’s a dazzling display that puts our region on the map. The CCA attracts thousands of wide-eyed spectators, both from California and around the globe. The annual economic impact stemming from the Airshow to benefit the Sacramento Region totals $7.1 million.
