Aviation Fun Day Cancellation Graphic

6th Annual Aviation Fun Day Cancelled

Please consider donating to The Food Bank of Waterloo Region & Self-Help Food Bank of Cambridge

Each year, we look forward to opening our doors to let people explore their airport on foot. In light of the COVID-19 crisis we have made the difficult decision to cancel Aviation Fun Day.

This will have a negative impact on The Food Bank of Waterloo Region and the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank. Food banks rely on fundraising events and food industry partnerships to operate, leaving significant gaps in donations. This has created a more urgent need for donations in our community. Now, our food banks need to buy even more food items to help fill inventory gaps and they need your help. Together, we can ensure they have enough to feed our most vulnerable. If you can, please consider donating to Food Bank of Waterloo Region and the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank.

We will get through this together - for now, we urge people to stay home, stay safe and stay informed.


Thank-you to our Aviation Fun Day 2019

In lieu of an admission fee, donations were accepted by The Cambridge Self Help Food Bank and The Food Bank of Waterloo Region. Thanks to everyone for making 2019 our most successful Aviation Fun Day to date!
