Cornucopia 2019 Fly-In, Wisconsin

June 21-23, 2019, Cornucopia Field, Cornucopia, Wisconsin

Come to the town of Cornucopia for a fun summer fly-in at Cornucopia Field (WI23)

Cornucopia is a quaint little town on the northern edge of Wisconsin on the shores of Lake Superior. 

Come for a weekend of camping under the stars and see the sights of this special place.

Fun things to do while you are there:

  • Kayak on Lake Superior and see the amazing sea caves
  • Visit the beautiful Apostle Islands National Lakeshore
  • Take a boat trip out to see the islands
  • Hike to see the local waterfalls (need handout map)
  • Join in the fly-out and see the beautiful Lake Superior Shoreline from the air
  • Fly over to Duluth for a Cirrus factory tour

Event RSVP

We have had fantastic interest in this event and are closing registration as of 4/29/2019, as we have reached our limit of 20 airplanes.  While we would love to accommodate more planes, it is a small airstrip and we just don't have the room to park any more.  Our hope is to clear some brush in the next year and be able to accommodate more planes at the next event.

Primitive camping under your wing is available at the airfield.  Amenities will include a porti-potti, picnic tables, and a fire pit.  Showers are available at Siskiwit Bay Marina for $5.
