Fort Lauderdale Air Show in 2023 is about 11:45 a.m. – 3 p.m. April 29 – 30, featuring U.S. Navy jets and other aerial performers.

Reserved seating areas with amenities are available for a fee.  The better the amenities, the higher the fee.

One of the deals is $37.50 for adults and $26 for kids ages 6-12 and free for 5 and younger.  With this deal, bring your own seating and umbrellas.

Some folks hang around the beach the day prior to the air show, April 28, when the pilots are practicing. The specifics of when practice occurs is not released.

If you want to skip the paid areas, some areas of the beach, including off Sunrise Boulevard and off Vistamar Street, offer free public access.
