The VIP Guest Enclosure is the place to be Air Show weekend!

Only a limited number of tickets to our exclusive VIP Guest Enclosure are sold daily. VIP Ticket blocks SELL OUT every year. Don't wait, secure your VIP spot today.

All types of VIP tickets get you access to the CIAS VIP Guest Enclosure. Admission to the Canadian National Exhibition is INCLUDED in your VIP ticket price. Our VIP Guest Enclosure is set-up right on the water. You have a direct line-of-sight to the phenomenal feats of aviation going on over Lake Ontario. It's also the area where you are most likely to find the pilots signing autographs after their performances.  
The VIP Guest Enclosure is also where the local and international media take their photographs and shoot their videos from.  If you're a photographer wanting to get the best shots, this is where you want to aim your lens from.

CIAS Air Show Displays and Vendors
Various performers and exhibitors are bringing their cool displays to the VIP Guest Enclosure. These displays are set-up so that our VIP guests can speak to and get autographs from various performers and crew members and get an inside look at cool vendors and exhibitors.

Food & Concessions
There will be dedicated food concessions (in addition to vendors and exhibitors) all within the VIP Guest Enclosure.

Children, aged 4 years or younger are granted FREE admission when accompanied by a parent/guardian to the VIP Enclosure.  At this time due to the limited number of seats, no further discount is available for children.

Wheelchair Accessibility
The CIAS VIP Guest Enclosure is wheelchair accessible and also includes accessible washroom facilities.  

We love Mother Nature - (however, she's been known to have a tantrum or two.) You should know that all performers have high, low and flat shows that can accommodate for different kinds of weather.

Unfortunately, we cannot offer ticket refunds. Rest assured, though, that the CIAS is a rain-or-shine event. If the performers aren't pulling Gs and twisting through the air, they'll be in the VIP Flight Deck sharing a drink and stories of aerobatic awesomeness with you.

The Big Tent - Don't worry about the weather - because we've got you COVERED! Literally. This year the CIAS VIP ticket area will feature a Ginormous-Franken-Tent (think Big Tent) to protect you from the all elements.

Rain or Shine, it doesn't matter.  IF . . . again IF . . . the weather prevents air show flying (don't forget performers have manoeuvres packages that facilitate their demonstrations in flat, high and low shows) there's gonna be a VIP Ticket ONLY party under the tent.  

To the best of our knowledge, no other air show has done anything similar. We refuse to let any sort of weather dampen a potentially great time. That means, regardless of weather forecasts, you get the chance to hang out with some of the best pilots in the world . . . meet & greet, get pictures, autographs, and hear unbelievable aviation stories.

Please don’t rely on the weather forecast to help you make up your mind.


Traffic Alert

Arrive EARLY! (You'll be too excited to sleep, anyway - it's air show day.) We have zero control over traffic conditions, plus it's a holiday weekend. Again we strongly suggest you arrive early. Here are some parking suggestions . . . Parking is available at several locations close to the CNE Grounds. Parking spaces are not guaranteed and we advise you to arrive very early, as the show is extremely popular and both parking and traffic become an issue when the planes are in the sky. You may want to consider taking transit to the show.  Please visit or for scheduling information and to view a full list of expressway and major route closures.
