Soggy weather has forced the cancellation of the Edmonton Airshow scheduled to take place at Villeneuve Airport on Aug. 17 and 18.

Persistent wet weather has saturated the fields used for airshow parking, causing significant operational and safety concerns, organizers said in a media release.
“We are deeply disappointed by this decision, but our number one priority is the safety of our patrons, event partners and the community,” said Richard Skermer, president and CEO of the Edmonton Airshow. “With more rain forecast over the next week, it is unlikely the fields will dry out in time, making parking safely almost impossible.”
