Monroe County Executive Adam Bello and the Frederick Douglass Greater Rochester International Airport today announced that tickets are now on sale for the 2023 A.P. Property Services Rochester Airshow. The popular community event will return to the Rochester skies the weekend of Saturday, August 12 and Sunday, August 13, 2023, and will feature the United States Air Force Thunderbirds and other exciting aerial performers. This is the first Rochester Airshow since 2019, which also featured the Thunderbirds as the headline act.
“The A.P. Property Services Rochester Airshow is one of the most highly anticipated events in our region and Monroe County is honored to have been selected again as one of the 34 host communities for the Thunderbirds in 2023,” said Monroe County Executive Adam Bello. “We look forward to welcoming the Thunderbirds to our airport for another performance in Monroe County – an experience that promises to leave spectators on the edge of their seats!”
ROC has been fortunate to host the Thunderbirds four previous times in the last 16 years when they were the featured act at ROC Airshows in 2005, 2008, 2014 and 2019. The Thunderbirds are the official air demonstration team of the United States Air Force and are stationed at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.
Each year the Department of Defense receives hundreds of requests to hold airshows. ROC was selected by the Thunderbirds at the 2021 International Council of Airshows (ICAS), where the team released its two-year schedule.
“A.P. Property Services is honored to work hand-in-hand with Monroe County, and proud to be the sponsor for the USAF Thunderbirds 2023 Airshow," said Sean Fico, President of A.P. Property Services.
This year, the 2023 A.P. Property Services Rochester Airshow is teaming with the National Warplane Museum Geneseo Airshow and offering Holiday Season discount tickets to both the ROC Airshow and the Geneseo Airshow for one low price of only $55. That’s a combined savings of $20 off gate admission prices. As always, children 12 and under are admitted free when accompanied with an adult general admission ticket.
The 2023 Geneseo Airshow will be held at the National Warplane Museum in Geneseo, NY the weekend of June 3-4, 2023. This years’ Geneseo Airshow will feature the F-16 Falcon Viper Demo Team in addition to the normal compliment of World War II and Korean era warbirds.
In addition to the Thunderbirds, the A.P. Property Services Rochester Airshow will also include various aerobatic demonstrations, ground displays, local food vendors, entertainment and much more, promising to make it one of the “can’t-miss” family events of the summer.
