Wings Over Springbank 2021 Airshow - Cancelled

July 12, 2019   |  

The Wings Over Springbank Airshow organizers have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event in support the latest provincial COVID-19 restrictions. The event, slated for July 24 to 25, would have featured the Canadian Forces’ Snowbirds.

Our YBW tenants at YBW who have voluntered and participated in past airshows have recently shared in an online survey just how much they value this event.

We look forward to partnering again with the Wings Over Springbank Airshow organizers to plan and welcome future events when it is safe to do so.
