AirVenture

Late July-early August
Begun in 1953 as a part of the Milwaukee Air Pageant, the AirVenture has grown to become one of the largest conventions of any kind in the world. Sponsored by the Experimental Aircraft Association, the annual event draws together enthusiasts of homemade flying craft, designers of more serious craft, and a host of individuals, companies, and government agencies involved in the aviation and aeronautics industries.
Some 10,000 aircraft of all kinds are on display at the convention. Included in this number are homebuilt airplanes, antique planes, classics, military craft, ultralight flying vehicles, and rotorcraft. In addition, over 500 forums are conducted by aviation leaders, NASA researchers, Federal Aviation Agency personnel, and aircraft designers. Some 800 exhibitors set up booths covering some one million square feet to display their aviation products and services. Workshops explain the details of constructing your own working aircraft. In the afternoon, there is a three-hour air show. In the evening, live entertainment performances feature NASA astronauts, test pilots, and leading aviation personalities. An estimated 750,000 people attend the convention every year.
