More than 500,000 from more than 60 countries attend the EAA AirVenture
For 51 weeks a year, the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) is an international community of more than 170,000 members that nurtures “the spirit of aviation” through a worldwide network of chapters, outreach programs, and other events.
But for one week each summer, EAA members and aviation enthusiasts totaling more than 500,000 from more than 60 countries attend EAA AirVenture at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin’s Event City, where they rekindle friendships and celebrate the past, present and future in the world of flight.
“Oshkosh” means only one thing to aviation enthusiasts from around the world – EAA AirVenture, “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration"! This aviation event has it all when it comes to aircraft, including Warbirds, Vintage, Homebuilts and Ultralights. Some you would normally find in a hangar at your local airport, others so unique they are the only one of its kind.
Oshkosh is THE dream destination for aviation enthusiasts. For many, arriving at ‘Oshkosh’ is a rite of passage that can only be satisfied by being one of the more than 10,000 aircraft flying in, landing at what becomes the busiest airport in the world for one week.
Whether you're an aviation enthusiast or an aviation novice, AirVenture has something for you. No matter what your age, you'll be entertained, informed, and thrilled by the countless activities available that reflect the spirit of aviation all around.
Enjoy daily air shows that include jaw-dropping aerobatics and pyrotechnics. Rock out at the opening day concert that in the past has included bands like the Beach Boys, the Doobie Brothers and Chicago. Take in a movie at the Fly-In Theater. Let your kids’ imagination soar at KidVenture. Study the latest aircraft and innovations and discover new ideas and techniques from the nearly 1,000 forums and workshops. See aviation's top personalities. Or, just talk airplanes with people from around the world. All of this, plus much, much more is included with your daily admission.
Add in the crowd-thrilling, show-stopping Night Air Show on Saturday night, and you have affordable fun for the entire family every day from sun up to well past sun down.
