Weekend Work Party

Get an insider’s perspective of the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration® while helping it come to life by volunteering at an upcoming Weekend Work Party!

What's a Weekend Work Party?

Good question. It’s a two-day volunteer event, where people from all across the country come to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, to help us prepare for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.

Volunteering at a Weekend Work Party is a simple, fun, and easy way to get involved in the aviation community. You’ll spend a weekend day (or two) connecting with people behind the scenes, learning how your skills relate to aviation, and helping the biggest fly-in in the world come to life.

We’re looking for volunteers to help with a variety of tasks and projects as we prepare the grounds for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. Projects can vary but can include grass cutting, tree planting, gardening, building construction/remodeling, fence removal, painting, material staging and more. The work varies in physical demand, but there are tasks suitable for all abilities.
