"After the absence of the show in 2020 and a scaled down version in 2021, this summer we are honored to be able to bring back in full force Chicago's storied tradition - the Air and Water Show. Celebrating more than 60 years, the free event showcases incredible feats from world-class military and civilian teams over an exhilarating two days," shares DCASE Commissioner Erin Harkey.

The best place to see the show will be along the lakefront from Fullerton to Oak Street. And as always, the show is free.
