What Isn't Allowed Through the Gates?

You can save yourself time and hassle by leaving the following items at home, in your car or at your campsite, as these items will not be allowed through the admission gates:

  • Coolers larger than 12-by-18 inches.
  • Beer, wine, liquor or any other alcoholic beverage.
  • Firearms, fireworks and explosives.
  • Knives with a blade length of more than 4 inches.
  • Pets, other than service animals.
  • Bicycles, roller skates, roller blades, skateboards, "Razor" style boards, Segway personal transports, or any other self-propelled device.
    *(one person electric/handicapped convenience vehicles are allowed)
  • Oversized backpacks.

Members camping in Airplane Camping areas can keep large coolers in their camping area, as long as the cooler has the proper pass. These coolers will be allowed after being inspected by security staff.

Random checks will be done on coolers, backpacks, large purses, and other bags allowed in. All items, vehicles and persons are subject to search.

Prohibited items, other than firearms and illegal substances, will be the responsibility of the individual who brought the item. If it is left behind, it will be taken to lost and found. If the item is food or beverage, it will be disposed of.


In consideration of our visitors, EAA AirVenture maintains a "no solicitation" policy on the grounds, and in the parking lots and campgrounds. This includes non-exhibitor commercial activity and/or advertising in those areas. If you are approached in any EAA AirVenture area by a person selling an item, collecting for a charity or distributing literature, especially in the camping areas or parking lots, please alert an EAA official or security immediately with as many details of that person as possible.

"For Sale" signs in aircraft or on prop covers are permissible without an exhibitor agreement, but no literature or plans may be distributed.

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
