Chicago Air and Water Show

  • Festivals

Don't be surprised if you get a neck ache from looking up during this two-day event, which returns to city skies in full-fledged form for the first time since 2019 this August. Join throngs of people at North Beach and surrounding areas (you're best off sticking along the lakefront from Fullerton to Oak Street) to catch air and watercraft demonstrations, including the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, the U.S. Air Force Heritage Flight and the U.S. Army Parachute Team Golden Knights.
