July is fast approaching, which means Oshkosh 2019 is almost here! Running from Monday, July 22 to Sunday, July 28, the festival has an overwhelming number of demonstrations, lectures, hands-on activities, and more.
We suggest that you buy a program, which contains a detailed map, grab a free copy of AirVenture Today, and read both before starting out. This will help returning and first-time visitor’s deal with the scale of the 1,400-acre show grounds.
