We went for the mid America truck show. The truck show was awesome but place us very confusing to find the different sections of show. Trying to go out the same door you came into you might as well forget it. Nobody we asked working the truck show could even help us to find the right entrance to go out.

Something is always going on at the Expo Center, which is conveniently located near two major Interstate Highways and the Louisville airport, which is just a stone's throw away. There's always something happening here, whether its a car show, gun show, home show, militaria show, music concerts or what have you. Sometimes these events are held simultaneously which results in... More

We attended the Louisville Gun Show here and this place was nice. The show was located in the South Wing and the restrooms were clean as well as the rest of the facility. We will go again!

This is a HUGE event that takes more than one day to visit. I liked all of the vendors and farm equipment. I didn't like the Tractor Show's tickets at $40 each. I wish there were more places to sit and rest.

This is the second show I have attended at the exposition. The facility is giantic with several entrances. Parking is a bit steep at $8. It was little better organized this time. The last time they forced us to go to a parking lot that was full, you have not choice but to circle the entire facility (and it is... More

I was at the exposition center for a trade show. I do these things several times a year all over the U.S.. the staff was one of the most helpful ones I've ever encountered. the place was clean, well kept, and there was an abundance of parking, even though they charged $8 a day. compared to other places I've exhibited,...

Carl Casper Auto Show is held in the Expo and the place is huge! There are bathrooms everywhere and well kept. Several locations of food courts, but take your wallet because it is pricey! They offer a lot of parking - fairly priced for the city.

We are from out of town and were surprised that it cost us $40 just to drive in the door. The air conditioned exhibits were pretty cool, and our kids (ages 4 and 6) enjoyed seeing all of the animals up close. Very cool!

This place used to be fantastic, but it has since gone downhill. It is no longer properly cared for and seems very dirty and run down

I guess the economy has made the vendors in the south wing a little more aggressive and carnival barkerish, but overall it continues to be a summer highlight in the Bluegrass state. The animal, photography, quilting and culinary exhibits are favorites... Missing this year, of course was teh Ugly Lamp contest sponsored by the now-defunct Lynn's Paradise Cafe. But the... More
