The 16th annual Bray Air Display will take place on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th July 2023. One of Europe's biggest and best air shows, Bray Air Display attracts thousands of people to the Co. Wicklow coastal town for the annual event. #BrayAirDisplay takes place thanks to the support of Wicklow County Council and Bray.ie. Bray Air Display attracts the largest single-family audience (+100,000 people over two days) of any free outdoor event in Ireland. It is estimated that the two-day event contributes €3.5 million to the local economy. The event makes a very significant, positive impact on the town of Bray, the surrounding region and contributes substantially to increased visitor footfall to the area, attracting both indigenous and international visitors. Bray Air Display was recognised as ‘Best Festival / Event Experience over 50,000 people’ at the prestigious, national Irish Tourism Industry Awards 2017 and in 2018 and 2019 it won silver in the ‘Best Tourism Initiative’ category at the All-Ireland Community and Council Awards.

Bray Air Display organisers are working in conjunction with An Garda Síochána, Wicklow County Council and respective agencies to implement a comprehensive traffic management plan for the duration of the event. Please be aware that the event is expected to attract a large volume of traffic on the road network and via public transport which will mean increased journey times.
Organisers would like to stress that all spectators please plan their journey in advance and arrive early for a stress-free journey to Bray. Before and after the event there will inevitably be traffic delays so please be patient. Regardless of your mode of transport, please arrive prior to 2pm.
All motorists are advised that they must pre-book their car park space online in one of the official event car parks prior to attending the airshow. For more information and to book a car space visit https://brayairdisplay.com/
