Quesnel Skyfest 2019 - August 2nd, 3rd & 4th
 

About the Quesnel Skyfest Society

F18 & a Wall of FireIn 2010, a one day airshow was produced in 8 short weeks after the Quesnel Flying Club decided to upscale their traditional Airport Appreciation Day.  In that same year, the Quesnel SkyFest Society (a non-profit society) was formed and a few of the original airshow founding members continued on as directors of the new society.  The objective of the new society was to promote aviation tourism, promote the community and region of Quesnel, and produce a bi-annual airshow.  In 2012, a two-day show was put on in order to learn more about the process in preparation for the 2013 show where the Canadian Forces Snowbirds and CF-18 were scheduled to perform.  Despite hiring a stellar lineup of civilian aerobatic performers, attendance in 2012 was low and the Society found themselves in a negative position when the show was over.  The Society directors felt that it was a matter of educating the public about the attractiveness of airshows as a family event.  So they continued to plan for the 2013 show and put together another top notch program of some of the industry’s top civilian aerobatic performers.

Their determination paid off and the 2013 and 2015 shows were a huge success.  The directors learned more about putting on a successful show and the public learned that attending airshows can be a great way to spend a weekend for the whole family.

The organizers are excited to bring another great show to Quesnel on August 2 - 4, 2019.
