EAA AirVenture 2020 Cancelled

(Oshkosh) EAA AirVenture is another casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic. Officials announced Friday morning they were cancelling the 68th annual fly-in convention scheduled for July 20th-26th at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh. EAA CEO and Chairman of the Board Jack Pelton says they looked at every possibility to move forward with the event, but with the state not reopening until May 26th they would be unable to start grounds preparation for AirVenture early this month. All pre-sold AirVenture 2020 admissions and camping reservations can be rolled over to the 2021 event or are eligible for refund. AirVenture 2021 is scheduled for July 26th through August 1st.
