SHOW HOURS & ENTRY
TGPA runs 10:00am - 5:00pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday with Airshow performances from 11:30am to 4:15pm.
Drop Zone Seating opens at 10:00am and can be entered through Gate A which is fully ADA accessible and Gate D. On arrival you will exchange your ticket for a wristband which will allow you to move freely in and out of the ticketed area.
PARKING & ARRIVAL INFO
Parking is available on a first come, first served basis around the city. Given its popularity, parking close to Show Center will be very difficult to find on Saturday and Sunday. If you live nearby, we highly recommend walking, biking, or using public transit. There is a Ride Share Zone for Uber and Lyft pickup/drop-off on Pacific Coast Highway between 1st and Huntington Streets.
If you bike, there will be a bike valet on Main Street near PCH. If you are driving to the show, please leave early, carpool, and expect delays. The Surf City Shuttle will be running on the 5th and 6th. For a shuttle loop map and GPS tracker download please visit: surfcityusashuttle.com

Plan your arrival strategy. Be prepared for traffic delays. Utilize Uber, Lyft, carpooling, take the shuttle busses, walk or bike if possible.
If you drive, please obey all posted parking signs. The last thing you want after a fun day at TGPA is a parking ticket or a towed vehicle.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! A day in the sun is fun, but be sure to drink plenty of water.
October can be hot! Protect yourself with sunscreen, sunglasses, hats and beach umbrellas.
NOTE: E-Z Ups are not allowed.
Bring earplugs/muffs, especially for kids. Part of the airshow thrill is the sound, but ear protection is highly encouraged, especially for young children.
Cameras and binoculars are a great way to capture the excitement.
Leave your drone at home! TGPA is an enforced NO DRONE ZONE for everyone’s safety.
PLEASE NOTE: Pop-up tents and coolers are prohibited from all ticketed areas. For a complete list of prohibited items, please review our FAQ: pacificairshow.com/faq
