In 2021, while the basic traffic loop to the AirVenture grounds remains, there are some upgrades to know:
Save by Purchasing Parking in Advance!
We urge you to save time and hassle, and purchase auto parking in advance online. To save on parking fees, advance auto parking is $10/day or an EAA-member only option of $60/week. Same-day parking purchased at the gate is $15/day – CASH ONLY – no credit or debit cards accepted.
Public Parking Lot Changes
All public parking lots (Brown, Gray, Yellow, Pink) are accessible from Poberezny Road, and will be staffed and open at 6 a.m. Those who park in the Gray Lot (shown below) can use the shuttle bus from the newly expanded Gray Lot shuttle hub. Those parking in the Brown and Pink Lots will use the shuttle available immediately behind the EAA Aviation Museum, while those in Yellow Lot can access the shuttle via the pedestrian path behind the Pioneer Airport hangars near KidVenture.
There is a new Gray Lot hard-surfaced entrance off Poberezny Road, with an expanded parking payment area and a new bus pickup/turnaround site. We encourage use of Exit 113 (Highway 26) and northbound Poberezny Road for faster access to the Gray Lot.
The former Blue Lot is now renamed D Lot. It remains public parking ONLY for vehicles that have state-issued disabled/handicapped identification (license plates, hangtags, etc.) It is otherwise permit parking, as permit lots inside the grounds have been eliminated to reduce conflicts with pedestrians on-site.
