Steamboat Springs Transit (SST) takes the labor out of Labor Day when it provides convenient, round-trip, shuttle transportation for spectators to the Wild West Air Show on Saturday, September 1, 2018.  

Free public parking and shuttle transportation is available at the Stockbridge Transit Center (1515 Lincoln Avenue) and the Routt County Justice Center (1955 Shield Drive).  From 9 AM to 3 PM, SST will operate shuttles approximately every 10 minutes between these locations and the airport.

There is NO PUBLIC PARKING at the Steamboat Springs Airport for the Wild West Air Fest. The airport’s limited parking is reserved for air show exhibitors, performers and public safety agencies.

Spectators are encouraged to walk, ride their bikes or drive to the Stockbridge Transit Center or Justice Center to catch the free SST Air Fest shuttle. Parking along Elk River Road around the airport is strictly prohibited.

Dogs are NOT allowed on buses or at the Air Fest event; and there is NO smoking at the air field. In addition, coolers and alcohol are NOT permitted; however, small backpacks, water hydration packs and water bottles are allowed. The Wild West Air Fest is a no drone event, and drone operations within five miles of the airport on Saturday are not permitted.  

You won't want to miss this day of high flying, edge-of-your-seat excitement at this year's Wild West Air Fest. With thrilling aerobatic and formation flying, static war birds, kids' activities, vendors, and a beer garden to keep you cool, this event has something for everybody.

The event is open to the public from 9AM to 3PM with the aerobatics performance soaring overhead from 11:30AM to 2:30PM. Get your tickets online in advance or at the gate.  A comprehensive schedule of events for the Wild West Air Fest is available here.
