Guests 21 and older will enjoy live music by B-Side as they admire three beautiful airplanes, including a fabulous red Stearman biplane.

This fun aviation evening takes place on the eve of the McConnell Air Show to benefit Exploration Place’s Opportunity Program, which provides access for all children in our community to develop a deeper interest in science and technology through creative and fun experiences. This includes field trips for Title 1 schools in USD 259, needs-based summer camp scholarships and reduced admission fees for low-income families through the Museums for All program.

Parking is at the Stearman Field Bar & Grill, and we will direct you to the Doonans’ hangar.
