For more than 50 years – Lethbridge has been home to what has become one of Canada’s longest running and Alberta’s largest Air Show. Since 1990 – this task has been managed by the Lethbridge International Air Show Association.
The “Lethbridge Air Show” has become a well anticipated, traditional destination for many motorsport and air show enthusiasts from across North America and abroad. Through the years Lethbridge’s Air Show has enjoyed audiences numbering anywhere from five to twenty and even thirty thousand spectators over a typical two performance weekend. With the support of many local volunteers and nonprofits, our region has hosted hundreds of performers and aircraft from all corners of the world including; The USA, Britain, Germany, Japan, Russia and others.
Because of our community roots, LIASA continues to produce the air show with a heavy focus on cooperation and partnership building with volunteer and community groups from across Southern Alberta. In exchange for providing resources and volunteers, our partner nonprofits receive air show proceeds and in-kind support throughout the year.
The support of Lethbridge County, The City of Lethbridge, and both Provincial & Federal Governments have been key to the ongoing success of Alberta’s premiere air show. For that – we wish to extend our recognition and deepest thanks. Not just to elected officials – but Administration, Public Servants, and taxpayers alike. ..and yes. To those who have enjoyed attending our shows. Without all of you – we would be nothing.
L.I.A.S.A. is proud of what our community has accomplished over the years. We are also proud to be planning our next show as we enter our 30th year as an organization.
We hope you’ll join us August 1st & 2nd 2020 as we celebrate our Anniversary in presenting the all new: “Alberta Air Fest” A celebration of Alberta’s Aviation & Aerospace Heritage.
…details & updates are forthcoming.
