Call your family and friends and mark your calendars for eastern North Carolina's biggest, baddest, fastest and loudest outdoor event September 25-26, 2021!

The commanding officer of Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point invites you to visit the Marine Corps' largest air base for the 2021 MCAS Cherry Point Air Show, featuring the world's top aviation aerobatic team, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.

Saturday and Sunday will both have full day shows featuring a dizzying variety of military and civilian aerobatic demonstrations including performances by Aftershock, RJ Gritter, Tom Larkin, Steve Covington and Hubie Tolson. You and your family will get up close and personal to dozens of historic and modern aircraft displays, as well as a wide array of military vehicles and equipment. The show will offer children's activities, an outdoor recreational show and much more. Admission and parking are FREE. The air show narrator will talk you through a Marine Air Ground Task Force demonstration as air and ground Marine combat forces simulate an assault on enemy positions right in front of your eyes! Individual demonstrations, such as one by the Marine Corps' AV-8B Harrier, will make it clear why the Marine Corps is the finest fighting force in the world.

As always, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels will provide the grand finale both days!
