DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Air show officials announced major parking changes to the 2022 CenterPoint Energy Dayton Air Show presented by Kroger.
According to the Dayton Air Show, the 48th annual show will be held on July 30 and 31 at the Dayton International Airport.
The General Admission parking lot will now be located entirely on the east side of North Dixie Drive across
from the air show’s entrance. In addition to this change, a portion of North Dixie Drive directly in front of the gateway will be blocked to give general admission patrons a safer walk to the entrance, according to a release.
Chalet, Pavilion and Flight Line Hangar ticket holders with P-Lot parking passes will now park on the south
side of the airport off West National Road. More than 30 shuttle buses will shuttle attendees to their chalets or pavilions. This change is aimed at keeping the shuttle buses out of air show traffic and reducing commute and wait times for attendees.
Handicap Parking, VIP Parking, C-Lot Parking and Media Parking lots have not changed.

multiple discussions with city and airport officials in order to get families to the air show grounds in the
quickest, safest manner,” said Scott Buchanan, Chairman of the United States Air and Trade Show Board of
Trustees. “As always, we encourage attendees to arrive early to avoid heavy traffic and ensure you don’t miss any part of our air show.”
