Along with the many other cancellations and changes this year, we are sorry to advise you that it was necessary to cancel all planning and preparation for the Gandy Dancer Drive-In/Fly-In Airshow. As you may know, planning begins early each year, sometimes as early as February. So, when the State made the call in March, Burnett County administration decided to cancel for 2020. This was not only due to Guidelines given by Wisconsin DHS, but because of the community support structure impacted by the Coronavirus.
The Airshow at Burnett County Airport, a free-admission community sponsored event, is only made possible through the generosity of our local businesses. Also, because of the restrictions placed on many of these sponsors due to COVID-19 causing financial hardships and limiting their ability to support our event and others, we feel it would be in everyone’s best interest to cancel this year’s airshow that was scheduled for July 18.
Thank you again for past support. We hope to be back on tract and see everyone in 2021. Save the date: July 17, 2021.
