(TOWN OF MAINE, NY) With uncertainty surrounding the spread of COVID-19, Broome County officials are announcing the 2020 Greater Binghamton Air Show, originally scheduled for July 25th, 2020 will be postponed until 2021.
“This was not an easy decision, but we feel it was necessary,” said Broome County Executive Jason Garnar. “The health and safety of our exhibitors, contractors, staff, and community is ultimately our priority, and must do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We look forward to bringing the event back to Broome County in 2021.”
Many of the event’s partners are supportive of this decision and have already ensured commitment to their participation in the 2021 Air Show.
“In an effort to protect all who are involved, we feel it is the responsible decision to reschedule the Air Show for 2021. In doing so, our local businesses, vendors, and community members will have time to heal and regain their footing,” said Commissioner of Aviation Mark Heefner. “We are certain that the 2021 Airshow will still be spectacular, and community partners have already signaled their commitment to next year’s event. We are determined to continue working together and have already shifted the focus of our planning efforts to 2021.”
