EAA AirVenture Oshkosh is an annual air show that attracts over 700,000 aviation enthusiasts from more than 80 countries every year. It’s a huge (we mean the world’s greatest!) aviation celebration, usually lasting for the whole last week in July.
Oshkosh air show location
The Oshkosh air show is held at Wittman Regional Airport and neighboring Pioneer Airport, while the southern part of the show grounds is located in Nekimi. The base for seaplanes is on Lake Winnebago in Black Wolf.
Organized by the Experimental Aircraft Association, EAA AirVenture features thousands of show planes, such as warbirds, homebuilt aircraft, vintage airplanes, seaplanes, ultralights, and aerobatic aircraft. As a visitor, you can rejoice in daily airshows, including two-night air shows, workshops, hundreds of forums, and demonstrations.
The air show also offers a KidVenture zone, a fly-in theater, helicopter and airplane rides, military jets, plenty of food vendors, GirlVenture Camp, a camping zone, and so much more.
