It will all start with a victory salute from a 70-year-old aircraft.
As the B-17 Flying Fortress Sally B leads the salute of eight Second World War bomber and fighter planes for the first time in 21 years, people will be encouraged to remember the victorious celebrations held on VE Day to mark the end of the war in Europe in 1945.
The VE Day Anniversary Air Show will take place at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford this weekend.
There will be a 1940s atmosphere throughout the weekend. People can get involved in a VE Day street party with wartime music and song.
Advance tickets for the VE Day Anniversary Air Show are no longer available, but tickets can still be purchased on the gate.
