I have been at Waukesha Expo Center for various functions at various times of the year. It accomodates a medium large crowd well and I enjoyed the cat show, political campaign stop, and the Waukesha County Fair.

I really enjoyed the facility when I was at a gun show here. Plenty of room and easy to park. It was easy to get to also. I was at the county fair here also. I went to many county fairs in the neighboring counties and this one is the biggest and best. In the past the county fair had... More

I was a faithful attendee of the County Fair until they allowed Beer and when they did the incidents of drunks and fight rose....I know I was a Deputy Sheriff who worked it! Empty cans and puddles of puke just aren't my cup of tea. And not to mention rising prices and having to pay to park! So, if you're... More

Unless you are paying big money for your spot to participate in certain events, the Waukesha Expo "powers that be" will not treat you the same or fairly. Vendors vs Participants. Very sad in this day and age to hold monetary biases to any of the people trying to make an event succeed and be a great family event.

I have attended several art and craft shows here in the spring and fall. This is a small scale version of the immense craft shows at WI State Fair buildings - sometimes that's all you want.

Easy to get around, clean bathrooms, some WiFi, good drainage. The buildings were easy to get in and out of and there were nice areas to view the dogs being shown. Lots of good places for shooting photos. There was a good selection of food vendors at the dog show and plenty of places to sit and eat. Lots of... More

They will have the Scottish highland games coming up I believe it is held every September. There is a German festival also. It is located next to the Waukesha County Airport. They also do the fireworks on... More

I'm relatively new to Waukesha and finally went to an event at the Expo Center this weekend (AKC dog show). I found the facility to be very good - clean, well laid out and good signage to aid traffic flow. It's great that Waukesha has a nice facility like this to host events.

We were there for a craft show this past weekend and it smells like sewer. The place is large enough, just old.

Fun...really really fun. Many people very serious about all things Scottish. The sporting events are fun to watch, like the Caber Toss, but you also get to participate in things like archery, knife throwing, and axe throwing. It was great fun and I didn't even wear a kilt...or have any semblance of Scottish anscestry.
