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 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.
Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks and projects to help us prep the grounds for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. Projects 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 ages and abilities.
- Daily admission exchange ticket for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh (good for any day)
- Overnight accommodations in the EAA bunkhouse for the weekend
- A meal and beverages during volunteer shifts
- Water, gloves, tools, and training needed for the assigned duties
- Special programming exclusively for Weekend Work Party volunteers
- An experience of a lifetime!
