US Navy’s Blue Angels Return April 9-10

Mark your calendars! Joint Base Charleston is holding its air show this weekend, April 9 and 10, 2022. Knocked out by COVID in 2020, the air show has not been held in Charleston since 2018. Included in the lineup of Navy airpower are the elite Blue Angels who have thrilled Charleston before. Performances, static displays, activities, and concessions are the same each day.

Learning from the traffic mistakes of four years ago, parking passes must be reserved in advance. There is no charge but this will help to control the traffic at the gate. A pass is required for each vehicle even if someone has other access to the base. Gates open at 9:00 am and inbound traffic closes at 1:30 pm on both days.
