Road Trip Tomorrow: Go to the Geneseo Air Show

My husband joked that I'm going to lose street cred because yesterday's Family Fun This Weekend post  did not include the Geneseo Airshow. I'm making up for it now. And fear not! If you missed it today, you can still go tomorrow.

The airshow begins at 10 a.m. on Sunday, July 15, with performances every 10 to 20 minutes, and the final performance at 4:30 p.m. The performances were pretty amazing, and the pilots were clearly talented. I had my doubts before we got there, but happily I was wrong.

If the kids get tired of watching the airplanes, take a walk around to see tons of planes on the ground. Our favorite was the shark plane, below.
 There's even a huge plane that you can walk inside! (my boys & I are on the steps, below)
The kids loved it! But we wish we had been a little better prepared for the event. So, I urge you to take your kids tomorrow, but there are some helpful things to know before you go.


  • Sunday, July 15 from 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
  • Located on a ginormous field on Big Tree Lane in Geneseo, NY (there are signs when you get close; you can't miss it)
  • Admission is $20 per adult; kids under 12 are free
  • Parking is free; there is a shuttle from the parking lot to the viewing area, but it may not be necessary for everyone (the walk isn't that far)
  • Admission is cash only; all on-site vendors are cash-only; there are no ATMs on site
  • On-site food options include: pizza, hot dogs, burgers, veggie burgers, gourmet grilled cheese & soups, ice cream, frozen drinks, fresh lemonade, and even frozen cheesecake on a stick!
  • There are lots of port-potties, however there is no diaper changing area


  • Folding chairs and/or blanket
  • Umbrellas or beach umbrella for shade (we had the kids sit in their canopied red wagon & they were fine)
  • A cooler with lots of water
  • You may bring your own food
  • Sunblock; be sure to reapply every 1-2 hours
  • Hats, sunglasses
I hope you enjoy the planes as much as we did! Be sure to Post A Comment if you go and let us know about your experience at the airshow. As always, thanks for reading.
