The Port-o-Can Question

First and foremost, we want to apologize for the quantity (or lack thereof) of restrooms available in 2022. Between the rainout on Friday, and the largest crowd we have ever had at our Airshow, the port-o-can lines were far too long, especially on Saturday. We want you to know that we will do better in 2023 to make sure there are more than enough restrooms for the size of the crowd. That problem has been addressed and we will do everything in our power to rectify the situation in 2023.

2022 Prime View Customers (ONLY) & Your Seats

2022 Prime view customers, you will receive a special link at launch to renew your seats. As always, Prime View customers will have first dibs on the seats they purchased in 2022. Make sure to renew your 2022 seats before June 26th, after that they will be released into the public inventory. Thank you for your continued support!


For our photography junkies, we will be offering our Photo Pit pass, along with the Sunrise Photo Tour. We also have a combo ticket which gets you into both. Those tickets will be available to you on Thursday, June 15th as well. We can’t wait to have you back!

What is the biggest difference between “Eagle Squadron” VIP and “Family Chalet”

Family Chalet includes complimentary admission for children 5 and Under for FREE, with an accompanying Adult Family Chalet ticket. Children ages 6-14 will need a Child’s Family Chalet ticket, with an accompanying Adult Family Chalet ticket. Eagle Squadron includes VIP parking, VIP restrooms, an airshow goodie bag (hat, poster and program), and open beverage bar (wine and beer). Family Chalet does not include VIP parking or VIP restrooms (there are restrooms available however in the Family Chalet – standard port-o-johns), goodie bag, or complementary wine or beer service. Family Chalet is a more affordable price for larger families, while still providing an up close experience to the show. There will be free food and non-alcoholic drinks provided in the Family Chalet, as well as children’s activities. We hope this helps you make a decision on which to choose. PLEASE NOTE: Everyone regardless of age needs a ticket to enter the Eagle Squadron. Children are allowed in Eagle Squadron, but must have a ticket.


Numerous people have asked, “does everyone, regardless of age, need to purchase an Eagle Squadron ticket?” The answer is yes. This is because of the per person catering cost. And, because alcohol is being served. It is also the biggest reason for the creation of the Family Chalet. Both the Family Chalet and Eagle Squadron offer similar views of the show and a more upgraded experience. The Family Chalet is a more affordable way to take the family to the show, but still have an upgraded experience.

If You Have ANY Ticket Purchase Issues, After Launch

If you have any issues with your ticket purchase, AFTER 12:00 PM (Noon) on Thursday, June 15th, please contact our ticket service provider EventSprout at Support@eventsprout.zendesk.com. We need to emphasize that EventSprout will only be able to help you AFTER tickets launch at noon on Thursday, June 15th. EventSprout customer service representatives are great at helping our airshow customers. However, the EventSprout customer service representatives do not sell or assist with selling tickets, only troubleshooting before or after a purchase if needed.

General Admission Ticket = Huge Value

To create a very affordable family airshow experience, we’re keeping our General Admission ticket policy the same as previous years. One 2023 General Admission ticket will include admission for one Adult and up to six Children (Children age 14 and under are FREE with an accompanying Adult General Admission ticket purchase) for a very reasonable price. Anyone age 15 and above will need a ticket. Children age 14 and under are FREE with an accompanying adult. Up to 6 children per ticket!


2022 Drive-In customers please read the message below. This is only applicable to 2022 Drive-In Customers.
***Due to the rainout in 2022, we offered free tickets to the Drive-In if you had a ticket in 2022. If you opted to roll your ticket over to 2023, you will receive an email from noreply@eventsprout.com on Thursday, June 15th with a ‘View Your Tickets’ button to download and print your 2023 WOH Drive-In ticket.***

Based on limitations, only 210 guaranteed tickets are available – Buy now before they sell out! We will not be selling the grass areas like we did in 2021. Those parking spots were too close to our Eagle Squadron tent that is being set up for the weekend. It blocked people’s view of the show. We apologize to anyone that faced that problem in 2021. We are unable to do anything about having the tent there, so our only option is to park everyone on the concrete where there is a better view. Get them now before they go!

This year’s 2023 Drive-In Airshow will feature a Friday afternoon Military-Might! drive-in style show. Friday, October 13th, we will open up part of our ramp to anyone interested in the drive-in air show experience. Picture a tailgate, but with airplanes! Gates will open at 2 PM, and flying will begin somewhere around 3 PM and go approximately to 6 PM. Please arrive early to make sure you get a good spot and don’t miss the jet team at approximately 3 PM. But please make sure you do not arrive too early. That will cause a traffic jam. Arriving around 1:30 PM would be ideal! The military teams will be flying for you, plus a few more surprises! .

Tickets for Friday’s drive-in will include a parking spot and an area directly next to your vehicle to “tailgate”. No grills or glass are allowed, but you are welcome to bring food and drinks, coolers, chairs and standard umbrellas (no beach umbrellas, please). There will not be access to the ground display aircraft ramp on Friday, but you will have an excellent seat for a GREAT show.

Drive-in tickets are per car and up to 6 people per vehicle. We are working on having food and drinks available for purchase and vendors selling hats, shirts, earplugs, etc. This is a fun and relaxed way to start the Airshow weekend off. Come out and enjoy an intimate show.

Business Class Tickets

On the adult side of the spectrum, we have our Business Class tickets. This Adult only (21 & Older) ticket is an ultra-premium VIP airshow experience. Amenities include an air conditioned tent to get out of the heat, top-shelf open bar, table service, performer meet and greet, and behind the scene air show tours. Business Class will also include a delicious menu of exquisitely catered food served throughout the day. To maintain the best experience possible in Business Class, we’re limiting the number of tickets to 150 tickets per day.

What are the 2023 Airshow Ticket Prices?

Ticket pricing and full ticket package details for 2023 airshow tickets will be released on launch day, Thursday, June 15th. Please keep an eye on your inbox for full details.

Important Parking Info

Upon purchasing a ticket, please print it out and look at the bottom half of the page. Each ticket comes with parking instructions, a map, and directions. Your ticket also serves as your parking pass. We do not charge anything extra for parking, but please read the instructions on the ticket carefully. Only people with an Eagle Squadron VIP and Business Class VIP ticket have special access to park in the PURPLE LOT. All other ticket types will park in General Admission – that includes Family Chalet tickets, Photo Pit tickets, Prime View tickets and General Admission tickets. If you arrive at the Purple Lot and do not have an Eagle Squadron or Business Class ticket, you will be sent to General Admission parking. Please Note: we also offer three park-and-ride locations for no additional charge. The park-and-ride locations will be listed on our website and offer an easy in-an-out option off site.

Please Note: No Ticket Refunds
Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds on airshow tickets. Rest assured, though, that the airshow is a rain-or-shine event. You should know that all performers have high, low and flat shows that can safely accommodate for different types of weather. There are also going to be amazing display aircraft on the ground.

Aircraft and performers are subject to change without notice, due to operational considerations. If anything changes, we will do our best to let you know. Thank you!
