EAA has arrived in Oshkosh

Airplanes, campers, vendors and enthusiasts have already arrived. Some weeks ago, some are waiting until the end of the week. We will get last minute calls though all week long. Some folks waited until the last minute and sometimes campers get tired of rain, cold or this year, possibly the heat. Either way, we are sure glad you are here. The noise of the engines and the spectacle in the sky is AMAZING! Every year, the thrill of the people from all over the world in Oshkosh is a feeling that is hard for me to express. One week, it is a place for so many to gather and enjoy with others their passion.

There is so much happening everyday at Air Venture like the daily afternoon air show at 3:30.

Monday is warbirds in review, along with the opening night concert. Steve Miller Band! Tuesday, pays tribute to the 75th anniversary of the Piper J-3 Cub.  Wednesday, pays tribute to The Greatest Generation in the Air, which salutes the Doolittle Raiders and the Tuskegee Airmen along with the Spirit of the Goodyear blimp arrival.  Thursday is Jet Day where there will be special performances by Jets along with an air show.  Friday is the salute to Veterans Day, with a free breakfast, parade and concert by Phil Vassar. Saturday is is super Saturday with a massive hot air balloon launch at 6:00, the annual 5K run/walk and Boogie Knights playing in the evening. Sunday wraps up the week with  family day, where kids from 6-18 can get in free with an adult.

If you have never been, come up for the day to check it up. Staying overnight might be a bit of challenge, but if you plan ahead for next year, you may just get lucky.
