The 18th annual California Capital Airshow, presented by Sacramento County in partnership with the City of Rancho Cordova, makes its return to Mather Airport on July 13 and 14, 2024. Headlined by the world-renowned Italian jet team, Frecce Tricolori, this event will feature an extraordinary lineup of performers, miles of ground attractions, and the anticipated return of nighttime aerial performances with pyrotechnics and fireworks.

The Airshow will be part of Frecce Tricolori’s first North American tour in more than 30 years and is the only location in the Western United States where spectators can witness their full performance. Frecce Tricolori consists of 10 high-flying Aermacchi MB-339 aircraft, making it the Guinness World Record holder of the most jet aircraft in a military aerobatic display team.

“It’s a great privilege to be able to bring these world-class performers to Sacramento for a one-of-a-kind airshow,” said Darcy Brewer, Executive Director of California Capital Airshow. “The return of our night show adds a whole new dimension of excitement to the event. This is going to be an Airshow you don’t want to miss!”

This unique show features four hours of nonstop aerial performances beginning at 6:00 PM each day. Performers will include the United States Navy F-18 Super Hornet Demonstration Team, U.S. Air Force F-35 Lightning and C-17 Globemaster Demonstration Teams, historic warbirds and highly-skilled civilian performers. As the sun sets, performers will fly with lights and pyrotechnics. The show will conclude with a pyro-musical fireworks show.
