Leamington airshow cancelled

An airshow scheduled in Leamington this summer has been cancelled.

Organizers of the Wings Over Windsor beach air show say they made the difficult decision to cancel because of logistical challenges.

“Our goal was to bring this event to Leamington in 2023, but due to logistical challenges, a tight timeline from approvals, and lack of sponsorship support for 2023, we needed to set our focus to the future,” said Nicholas Chute, director of operations.

Organizers are now setting their sights on a show in June 2024.

“We believe in delivering a show that meets our expectations as an organization, and if we aren’t 100% confident we can deliver on that, we feel that it’s in the best interest of W.O.W., our guests and our partners to reevaluate our 2023 event status and set our sights on 2024 with more time to deliver an event that exceeds our expectations,” said Chute.

Anyone who has already purchased tickets for the airshow can either transfer the tickets to next year's event or get a full refund.
