Directions To AirFest
Mass Transportation and Ride Share Information:
Due to personnel and logistics issues with the provider, mass transportation for Tampa Bay AirFest 2024 will not be authorized for AirFest weekend - March 29-30, 2024. We are also discouraging guests from using ride share services. Given the limited number of entry and exit points to AirFest we have found that ride share services struggle both with drop-off and pick-up of AirFest guests. Tampa Bay AirFest encourages guests to use their own personal transportation and highly encourages guests to carpool. AirFest guests may ride their bicycles to AirFest (helmets must be worn on MacDill Air Force Base & bicycle locks are recommended). Please only ride your bicycles through the MacDill Ave gate.
Located at MacDill AFB.
Vehicles coming from South Tampa and areas East of Tampa should utilize the Dale Mabry and MacDill Ave Gates.
Vehicles coming from areas West of Tampa should utilize S Westshore Blvd to Interbay to enter the Tanker Way Gate (just East of Manhattan Ave).
DoD ID Cardholders should utilize the Bayshore Gate Only.
