Popular tradition to go on following unprecedented weekend rainout.
New York State Office of Parks Recreation and Historic Preservation today announced the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach State Park will be held on Memorial Day, Monday, May 31 after heavy rain forced cancellation of the weekend performance. This year will be the first time the performance was held on Memorial Day since being launched at Jones Beach State Park in 2004.
Committed performers include the United States Air Force Thunderbirds, the United States Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt (Warthog), Golden Knights, GEICO Skytypers, Mike Goulian, David Windmiller and others. The show will take place 12 to 3 p.m. For the latest information, visit: https://bethpageairshow.com

“I’m tremendously grateful for all the partners, performers and staff who are pulling together to make Monday’s show happen,” said State Parks Commissioner Erik Kulleseid. “We’re excited for the traditional summer season at Jones Beach, starting with the Bethpage Air Show.”
