As you approach Tinker Air Force Base from Interstate 40 or I-240, look for signs directing you to the entrance. Parking and shuttles from the parking areas are free. Buses will run continuously on Saturday and Sunday beginning at 8 a.m. An average bus trip will be less than 15 minutes and will deliver passengers to the security checkpoint. All visitors should be prepared for inspection of belongings as you are entering a military installation.
Driving from the west side of the base to the east side will be restricted. Authorized personnel can enter through the Tinker, Vance and Gott Gates. Personnel can park at the 72nd Medical Group, Bldg. 1094, and take the free shuttle to the event area.
Public Entry Points/Parking: On the south end of installation, Bldg. 9001 (the old General Motors Plant off of SE 74th Street) will have access points open to enter into the parking area south of Bldg. 9001. On the east side, Hruskocy and Lancer Gates will be open for public entry into parking lots north and east of Bldg. 3001.
Guests with wheelchairs, strollers or wagons are highly encouraged to enter through the Hruskocy or Lancer gates to mitigate excessive time spent loading/unloading buses.
Please have your driver’s license available for the gate guards. Seatbelt use is mandatory on Tinker AFB. Please ensure all passengers are buckled up. Use of cell phone while driving a motor vehicle is prohibited on base; however, hands free devices are permitted. Park vehicles in designated areas and proceed to the gated entryway or shuttle bus stop. Base security forces will send you in the right direction. All visitors will proceed through a security checkpoint either before boarding the shuttle buses or entering the event area.
Shuttles from Bldgs. 1094 and 9001 will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Be safe and enjoy the show!
