A Salute to Those WHO Serve

2020 Atlantic City Airshow is Cancelled

The Greater Atlantic City Chamber regretfully announces the cancellation of the 2020 Atlantic City Airshow due to public health risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. While COVID cases continue to decline in New Jersey, other states are experiencing increases.  Using last year’s theme, “A Salute to Those Who Serve,” this year’s theme was going to be expanded to include not only members of the military, but also heroes on the front line who worked and continue to work tirelessly to provide critical care and services relating to the COVID crisis.

“The Airshow generates enormous economic impacts for the City and the region, but a mass gathering this summer creates too great a risk to our residents and those travelling in from other states,” said Michael Chait, President of the Greater Atlantic City Chamber.  “The priority of our organization and of our many partners is public health and safety surrounding an event of this size. We are sorry to disappoint the thousands of participants who look forward to attending this family-friendly event each year and look forward to an even bigger and better event in 2021.”

The Atlantic City Airshow is the largest mid-week Airshow in the country and is the largest event in New Jersey, attracting upwards of 500,000 spectators from the tri-state region. Over the years, the Chamber expanded opportunities for greater audience engagement, including the introduction of mid-week events that included a Red, White and Blue barbeque and a boardwalk-based Veterans Resource Row. The Chamber is incredibly proud of its collaboration with dozens of partners and government agencies over the past 17 years, resulting in a world-class event.
