State Parks Announces Tickets Sold Out for 2021 Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation announces that tickets for the 2021 Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach are sold out.

As previously announced, only ticket holders will be allowed to enter the park. Any vehicles that do not have a special access pass will be turned away. Empire Passports are not valid for this event.

Those unable to attend will still be able to observe through a livestream of the event available at WABC-TV, as well as on WABC’s Connected TV Apps on Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, and Roku. The livestream will air Saturday, May 29, 2021 with a rain day of Sunday, May 30, 2021.

The Coast Guard and partner agencies will be enforcing a No Entry Zone for boaters off of Jones Beach State Park during the air show to ensure the safety and security of the event. The No Entry Zone will be marked with orange colored buoys.

If there is an emergency on the water, the Coast Guard can be reached on VHF channel 16 or dial 911. For safe boating information visit:
