HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah --
With more than 500,000 spectators expected to attend the 2022 Warriors Over the Wasatch Air and Space Show at Hill Air Force Base June 25 and 26, here are some dos, don’ts and tips to help attendees have the best experience possible.
Gates open at 8 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, with the show starting around 9:45 a.m. General admission is free. The schedule is the same each day (subject to change), with the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds performing last, concluding at approximately 4:30 p.m.
The best way to get to the show is to use public transportation. Utah Transit Authority is offering enhanced FrontRunner and shuttle bus service to the show both days, with a discounted $5 HAFB Airshow Day Pass or a $15 Group Day Pass (up to four people) available at rideuta.com/airshow.
Attendees can ride the FrontRunner train to the Clearfield Station, where shuttle buses will arrive every 15 minutes to take riders to the event entrance. Trains will arrive every 30 minutes before and after the show, and every 60 minutes during the show. You can also park at Clearfield Station and ride the shuttle.
If you choose to drive, know that parking on and off base is limited.
Parking locations include Weber State Davis Campus, off University Parkway Boulevard, and Northridge High School, off Hill Field Road. Shuttle buses will be available to take attendees to the show and will run continually from these lots.
Take Exit 338 or Exit 335 off Interstate 15 if you want to park on base. The interstate’s overhead digital signs will direct drivers to the preferred exits. Limited handicapped parking is available on a first come, first served basis through the Hill South Gate located off State Route 193 and can be accessed by showing your handicap placard.
