CFB Borden invites you to the 2020 Canadian Armed Forces Day & Air Show
13-14 June 2020
Whether you live nearby, or come from afar, are a member of the public or a member of the Borden defence team, our doors are open to you 13-14 June 2020
In 2018, we celebrate 60 years of North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD), and there’s no better place to recognize this partnership that than right here in Borden, the birthplace of the Royal Canadian Air Force. Featured as part of CAFD, the airshow will include Canadian Forces demonstration teams such as the CF-18 Hornet Fighter Jet, the Snowbirds, and the SkyHawks Parachute Team.
While you’re here, we encourage you to visit all the military unit displays to learn about what we do, as the largest training base in Canada. Whether it’s vehicle technicians at the Royal Canadian Electrical Mechanical Engineering School, padres training at the Canadian Forces Chaplain School and Centre, 400 Tactical Helicopter Squadron who support the maintenance of our CH146 Griffons coming back from active duty in the Middle East and Africa, or the Regional Cadet Support Unit where CAF members support the training for over 17,000 cadets in Ontario, we celebrate a “team of teams” here at Base Borden.
We know you’ll have a great weekend and look forwarding to seeing you here!
Pickup your FREE copy of the airshow program the weekend of, at the Borden Citizen booth.
General admission tickets will also be available at the Base Borden CAF Day & Air Show entrance gates on June 13 and 14, 2020

"I used to come to this airshow as a kid as my mom grew up in Borden. It was really cool to return as an adult and experience it again with her. Looking forward to the next!"
