What not to bring to the Selfridge Open House & Air Show

Safety is always the primary concern at air shows. Selfridge Air National Guard Base works very closely with local and federal authorities to ensure safety. Selfridge follows and enforces all security rules and regulations as required. You will notice extra uniformed security at the Air Show, both military and civilian.  Camera and video surveillance are used for security purposes.

Regrettably, due to heightened security requirements items such as backpacks, coolers, and duffel bags will be prohibited on the airfield. Some exceptions will be made for items such as small diaper bags, purses 12? x 12? and folding lawn chairs, but visitors must submit them to security personnel for an inspection. Large purses (tote bag type) are not permitted.

Weapons and weapon replicas of any type are prohibited during the Open House and Air Show. Weapons include, but are not limited to firearms (regardless of permit), blades, and blunt objects. Patrons with firearms will be asked to leave the installation.

Alternatively, there will also be amnesty boxes at each entry point for leaving prohibited items behind prior to screening. There are no returns of items left in amnesty boxes.

All pets are prohibited from the Air Show grounds. Service animals assisting physically challenged guests will be authorized. At no time will pets be left unattended outside the area or in vehicles.
