In light of the ongoing recommendation from the Government of Alberta regarding events over 15 people, 4 Wing/CFB Cold Lake has opted to suspend all sales of the 2020 Cold Lake Air Show until we have a clearer understanding on how events in July will be affected.
We are hopeful that the event will be taking place as planned.
In the event that the 2020 Cold Lake Air Show is cancelled due to COVID-19, all tickets will be refunded.
There is nothing for customers to do at this time. We will keep you informed as soon as we have further details.

Wing Commander’s Message
I am very pleased to announce that 4 Wing Cold Lake will be hosting a two-day air show event for the weekend of July 18-19, 2020.
The 2020 Cold Lake Air Show (CLAS) will be a wonderful opportunity to showcase the Lakeland and bring the community together for an exciting and fun-filled event.
Cold Lake Air Show 2018 attracted more than 21,000 spectators over a two-day period. It presented a wide variety of aerial and static displays for a world-class family event. In 2020, we expect more spectators to attend the air show event as the U.S. Navy Blue Angels Demonstration Team will be featured, as well as the classic car show and a variety of kids’ entertainment options.
To host a professional and memorable event generous support is received from our sponsors. This allows the CLAS to continually attract world renowned performers. All proceeds from this event is reinvested into the military community, through subsidized programming and events for former and serving Canadian Armed Forces members and their families of 4 Wing Cold Lake.
The Cold Lake Defence Team is excited for this upcoming event as we are keen to build on the energy and momentum from past air shows.

The City of Cold Lake is proud to support the 2020 Cold Lake Air Show (CLAS), hosted by our friends at 4 Wing Cold Lake.
The Air Show brings a great sense of pride to our region. As community members, we are not only able to take in the grand display of aircraft and flight demonstrations, but we can share the event with visitors.
The City of Cold Lake is proud to be the home of 4 Wing, and we are excited that the Canadian Armed Forces members have this chance to showcase the tremendous amount of time and dedication they bring to their jobs each day.
Residents in Cold Lake are used to hearing the rumbling of the CF-18s and seeing the jets on their way to and from their training missions, but nothing compares to seeing the full display of these pilots’ talents close up – it’s an awe-inspiring experience that stays with you.
This event will be a spectacular show of the Royal Canadian Air Force, the best of civilian aviation, and our northeastern Alberta hospitality. I look forward to seeing everyone at the 2020 CLAS, and join all residents of Cold Lake in thanking the members of 4 Wing Cold Lake for making our community, and our country, the great place it is to live.
I wish all the attendees a memorable show, and a great stay in our beautiful city.
