Important Tips For Parking at Wings Over North Georgia Air Show

Wings Over North Georgia in Rome, Ga is one of the most exciting air shows in Georgia, and it is coming in fall.  We’re excited to be going for the first time this year. Once I mentioned that on Facebook, I received a ton of questions about parking at this large event. I contacted the Rome CVB for more information, and here is what they shared! Hope to see you there!!


  • Premium reserved parking is available at the Airport for only $20 per car online and $25 at the gate. Follow the link to get your tickets.
    • When you arrive with your reserved parking pass, you will be immediately directed to the remote parking lot or overflow area.
    • A special note from Rome’s Ann Hartman, who is totally in the know:
      • If you have pre-purchased airport parking I would ALSO STRONGLY SUGGEST these directions: From ATL – follow directions to the Braves Stadium, turning right, but STAY ON the Armuchee Connector – passing Bella Roma. At first traffic light, TURN RIGHT on Old Dalton Road. Continue on Old Dalton Road to Warren Road (about 2 miles) and turn LEFT.  Continue on Warren Road about 1 mile and airport parking will be on the RIGHT – there will be a clearing and you will see the airport fencing.
  • Remote places to park include the Rome-Braves Stadium, Armuchee High, Northside Church (only Saturday please,) and the North Floyd Park Community Center.
    • Remote parking is $15 per car in advance or $20 at the gate.
    • If you do not purchase the premium pass, you really want to try to park at the Stadium. These buses will go “the back way” to the airport and bypass the traffic going to the airport and remote parking spots located on 27N. Last year the back way was wide  – only the locals from the area knew to travel Old Dalton to Warren Road!
  • Parking lots open at 9am
  • All parking fees include round-trip shuttle to the airport.
    • Saturday, shuttles begin at 10am and the shuttle from the parking lot to the airport ends at 7:30 pm (fireworks conclude at 8:30 pm Sat)
    • Sunday, shuttles begin at 10am and the shuttle from the parking lot to the airport ends at 3pm.

    Do NOT park at the Braves stadium-***”blue”*** lot!! My hubby and I went today (Sat Oct 21) and paid $15 for parking and their shuttle (which was a van!). Getting TO the airshow was no problem. It was a complete nightmare getting back. They only had a couple shuttles running and literally thousands of people. The line you’d get in to catch the blue shuttle/van back was so long your eyeballs couldn’t see the end. We waited 2 hours. People cut like crazy b/c there was no delineation of the different lines, and ppl just decided “to heck with it, I’ll cut”. Ugh. I hate cutters. Nightmare.

    The air show is AWESOME though!!!! We appreciated your advice on where to park, even though the Blue lot sucked. 🙂 Rome is lovely!!! (We’re not from here)

  2. The airshow was amazing and Blue Angels are as welL..DO NOT use the Blue shuttle, or any shuttle parking if possible. There are many homes with signs for paid parking nearby, and the south airport lot had parking available mid afternoon. As noted above, the lines were unbelievable, and I heard from others they waited 3 hours!!! We were SO lucky to be able to get a ride from a friend that happened to park closer. With a toddler in a stroller, I cant even imagine having waited in that line. Next time, I will certainly pay for parking at the airport in advance.

    I agree 100% with the two other comments about Blue shuttle parking. Wings over Georgia should be ashamed!!! It was a disaster!!!! Very disorganized and total chaos. Not enough shuttles for the volume of the people they had and shuttles were just small vans and not big busses. Waited over 2 hours in line to get back to my car. Unacceptable!!!!! In the future I will park at the homes just South of the Airport that only charge 10.00 for parking.
