Holloman Opens Doors for Community Connections Day


Holloman Air Force Base is hosting Community Connections Day on Sept. 30 from 2-6 p.m. to provide an opportunity to better connect with nearby communities. The event is free and open to the general public.

Activities will be similar to the ground portion of last year’s air show to include static displays of aircraft, music, and STEM activities for children. There will also be information about job opportunities, a miniature drone competition and a car and motorcycle show. Many local businesses and organizations will have informational booths.

Food and 49th Wing unit souvenirs will be available for sale but please bring cash. The vendors will not have the ability to take credit cards and there is no ATM on site.

A free rock concert will start at 6 p.m. featuring the bands Skillet, The Dirty Hooks, and Hoobastank.

All DoD ID cardholders and vendors will enter through the Main gate. The general public will enter through the West (Commercial) gate and will not need a base access pass. Entry into the event through the West Gate will begin at 1:30 p.m. and will close at 6:30 p.m.

All drugs, including any form of marijuana, are prohibited on base. No weapons are allowed on base including pocketknives.
