Kentucky Fair

Kentucky Fair was good, lot of walking, and many animals to view. Home made quilts were absolutely beautiful.

When something comes to town that you want to see, sometimes you have no choice but to go to the fairgrounds. Such was the case this past weekend with the car show, which was GREAT. However, if I could go to the car show somewhere else then I would love it and even pay more!! The fair and expo center... More

We went out to see the Antique Car Show today. It is a fabulous place to hold this event. There is more than adequate parking, although very expensive. The owners of the cars come from all over the country with about every style and year of old car you can think of. They are eager to not only tell you... More

This is the largest convention center I've ever been in. I was here for an antique car show and all 300+ cars were in one room. I was here 5 years ago for the same show and there were 600 cars in the same room. The center has the ability to have multiple large shows going on at the same... More

This is a great place to visit for large flea markets. The Carl Casper Auto Show is also held here, as well as the Kentucky State Fair, and several concerts and shows. This is a very versatile venue with plenty of places to explore and walk to. Kentucky Kingdom is also right next door. Has plenty of on site parking.... More

We were there for a week and the center was large enough for the event we were at. There is a civic center that also fit our needs. It was within walking distance or the bus route to our hotel.

We recently attended Skills USA at the expo center and it was amazing. I've never been to such a huge exposition center. It was very clean and well-maintained. There were over 16000 people there and it was great!

We were here for the NASP tournament. There didn't seem to be enough people at the door to check in all the people (at least on Friday in the morning.) Bathrooms were clean and the concessions were good. No lines there. Thank you for hosting the National Archery in the Schools Tournament again!!
