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!!

Wife and I arrived around noon and found first bargain. Large fern plants for 6@. She just had to have them. I love looking at people tools( not that I need more of either one). Very large displays and merchandise available to the people. Again I am not a shopper but enjoy watching the crowd.

A large flea market is held there each month except for August when the Ky. State fair is held. The antique section is always fabulous.

Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes because this place is really big. We went here for the VEX Worlds Robotics championship. The exhibit area is so big and they even have multiple arenas for special events. I wish the parking is free (it costs $8 to park per day).

First off, I want to say that this venue was a nice improvement from the previous place that held this event. It is in a nice location and closer for most of the teams that compete at it. However, there are some things that should be worked on. 1. Cleanliness of facility. By saying this, I mean that you shouldn't... More

The MATS show was very good. The venue was nice but could use some improvement. They charge for parking, no problem. The problem, not all of the gates (cashiers) were open each day. On Friday morning of the show I was in line for 1 hour and 10 minutes just to get past the gate. Parking lots were full and... More

This show is awesome and just gets better. The last time I attended the show was about ten years ago. The Kentucky Fair & Expo Center has really expanded. If you're a trucker or love big trucks this is the biggest and best truck show in the world. This visit I brought my 3 young grandsons along, they were in... More

I came to the Eastern Gun Show at the Expo center, and was surprised at how large it was, and how nice the facilities are. There were at least 4 or 5 separate events this Saturday...the gun show, a golf show, a home show, a military how and a couple of others. Traffic was handled pretty well. Parking is $8/car.... More

We attended the 2015 National Farm Machinery Show at the Kentucky Expo Center. It was easy to find the Expo Center and the parking was well organized. The Expo Center is huge. Clean facility and friendly staff working at the show. Traffic in and out of the Expo Center moved along nicely. The only complaint would be the road construction... More

This is an extremely large convention center. We were here for a cheer competition. There were about 11000 cheerleaders participating plus they had at least 2 other events going on and there was plenty of room. Good food vendors. Not ridiculously expensive. Staff was friendly. Have to pay to park but that is pretty typical at competitions.
