Directions to EAA and to the U Lot

You can try entering "1045 Schaick Ave, Oshkosh, WI" in your GPS. That should get you to the F Lot. Otherwise, take Poberezny Rd (the east frontage road of Hwy 41) south past the EAA Museum to Waukau Ave. Go left around the corner (east) on Waukau Rd. to Forest Home Ave. Go right on Forest Home to Schaick Ave., then left on Schaick to the F Lot.

For the U lot, try GPS: 3785 Knapp St., Oshkosh, WI


Be Aware:

As to tools, at a minimum GES requires in the contract that all hands have with them:

GES suggests the following:


The Employer on this show is GES Exposition Service NOT Alliance, Inc. You will need to have paperwork CURRENT with GES. They will NOT issue a paycheck without having your W-2 and I-9 on file first, and they regularly purge their files of inactive employees. If this is your first EAA, OR you didn't work EAA last year, bring along a photo ID (driver's license, etc.) and your Social Security Card for filling out an I-9. A passport will also do. You simply won't be allowed to work and you won't get paid if you do not have CURRENT paperwork ON FILE WITH GES. If you didn't work for GES last year, then you are not current and must file new paperwork. BE PREPARED.

Check-in will be located pretty much where we were, in Hanger D by the F lot. If you have worked EAA before, you will be able to find us easily.

During Setup prior to Sunday 7/24, and during teardown Monday 8/1 - Thursday 8/4: Workers should report to the south side of Hanger D to check in each day. Get there early so we can get your daily paperwork filed out. Otherwise your paycheck may be delayed. To get there: Take Hwy 41 to Oshkosh, exit Hwy 44 east to Knapp Street Rd. south to first right which is Poberezny Road. Follow past EAA Museum to Waukau Ave. (you can only go left). On the right hand side look for the EAA Bus Park tower and turn right on Forest Home Ave. Follow that to the "F Lot" parking lot located behind Hangers B and D.

For Show Days Monday 7/25 to Sunday 7/31: Parking will be available in the "U Lot" ONLY. However, the U Lot has moved! It is now located on Ripple Rd. between Poberezny Rd. (the frontage road) and Knapp St. Rd., on the North side of Ripple Rd. (The old U Lot is now Lot Z.) GES usually shuttles workers from the lot to GES headquarters BUT ONLY IF YOU ARE THERE ON TIME! It's a bit of a hike, so allow time to get to work ON TIME or you'll be hoofing it about a half mile, AND missing the "bus" MIGHT get you fined for being late! There is a map on how to get there at:
