*** NEW DATES *** We have made the difficult decision to postpone Yealands Classic Fighters Airshow until the 3rd to the 5th of September 2021. The air show is Marlborough’s largest and most ambitious event and has been thrilling crowds since 2001. We would like that to continue and hope that with a little more time the current uncertainty will have settled and New Zealand will be ready to support this amazing event. The three-day show is the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre’s biennial fundraiser and attracts people from throughout New Zealand and the world. It’s a brilliant long weekend of over 100 spectacular flying machines, classic cars, award-winning Marlborough wine & food, music, fireworks, a kids' fun zone and fantastic entertainment.
More than just an air show, Yealands Classic Fighters is internationally renowned for its spectacular ground theatre with innovative battle scenarios combining re-enactors, military vehicles and pyrotechnics, all supporting the aircraft display above. Storytelling is what Omaka does best and with 2021 being our 20th Anniversary we'll be marking the occasion by drawing on the best of past shows to bring you an unforgettable holiday weekend of spectacular entertainment! So keep Father's Day Weekend, 3-5 September 2021 free.
All proceeds from this event go towards helping expand the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre. If you have purchased tickets already they will be valid for the new dates but if you would prefer a refund you will also have that option. Thank you for your support.
