The first edition of the airshow was hosted in 1981 in Salinas, California. Over the years, the premise remained the same – to deliver a great airshow for anyone willing to attend, and raise money for local charities. To say the least, it worked. The airshow has become the largest of its kind in North America.

Usually, the California International Airshow features performers, both civilian and military, from the US and Canada, along with static aircraft, exhibitions, and displays.

What To Do In The Area

  • Salinas offers a lot of historical sights, for example, The Steinbeck House, which was the birthplace of the famous John Steinbeck.
  • If you're a fan of Steinbeck's work, you'll be delighted to visit the National Steinbeck Center that features the largest Steinbeck archives in the US.
  • If you still have some space for more history, you should visit the Harvey-Baker House. It's a historical structure, built in 1868 where the merchant and politician Isaac Julian Harvey used to live.
  • Thrilled for more nature? Carmel-by-the-Sea is where you should go. A beautiful beach and a historical Carmel's Mission (built in 1771) is what makes this place such a lovely sight.
  • And lastly, there's Monterey, one of the most popular destinations in California, with plenty of other attractions like – for example – a Monterey Bay Aquarium.
