The March Field Air & Space Expo at March Air Reserve Base (ARB) has been announced for the weekend of April 7-8, 2018! This year’s Air Show is especially significant, as it marks the 100th anniversary of historic March Field (today's March Air Reserve Base) and is anticipated to draw record crowds.

Guests who have previously attended air shows at March ARB know that parking and traffic will be severely congested at the Base itself. March Field Air Museum is proud to announce it will, once again, help alleviate the congestion by offering a convenient alternative this weekend: For a single per-vehicle entry fee, the Museum will provide guests an opportunity to view the aerial demonstrations and fly-bys in a less-congested location with efficient on-site parking (Note: there is no physical access to the Air Reserve Base from the museum grounds).

Located adjacent to the west side of the runway at March ARB, the Museum offers an excellent, alternative view of the aerial demonstrations from its location just outside and immediately adjacent to the Base. Customized, live narration of the aerial demonstrations will be provided both days. The Museum will have food trucks and other vendors on hand to offer food and beverages for purchase. Guests may also bring their own previously prepared food and drink. A beer and wine garden will offer adult beverages on-site (outside alcohol is strictly prohibited). Guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and shade to watch the show.

For just $30 per automobile (oversize vehicle rates higher), parking and entry to the Museum will be provided. Parking of vehicles at the Museum will begin both days at 8 a.m. The Air Show itself is scheduled to kick off at 11 a.m., and end at 4 p.m. The Museum’s website provides additional details regarding the Museum’s special hours on April 7-8, allowable/prohibited items, parking/entry fees for oversize vehicles, overnight RV parking (limited availability) and more: www.MarchField.org/calendar.
