Clean, open and large expo facility for our recent national dog show. Can't say that sitting on my bum for hours was fun, but seeing the dogs shown was worth the butt fatigue from the aluminum bleacher sitting areas. Word to the wise, if you're going to be sitting for hours, consider purchasing and bring stadium chairs with backs to... More

Attended our National Specialty dog show here last week and was pleasantly surprised at the size and scope of the Fredericksburg Expo & Conference Center First of all, the parking was FREE and VAST (which - at an expo center - is the exception rather than the rule). The main room for the conference was VERY large - I've been... More

Average big-enclosed-windowless space. Average # bathrooms in diag opposite corners (so only took 10 women wanting to go for there to be a lineup). Unappealing-looking food (not sampled), fortunately there is a big Wegmans a 5min walk away. Ample free parking.

We've been here for boat expos, craft shows and race packet pickup for Historic Half weekend. The center itself is nice, but it's pretty average for an event venue. There are enough restrooms for the venue size and, other than that, it's a big empty space. Our experience differed significantly by event. For the boat expo, I was surprised to... More

Great venue for a dog show. Lots of parking, easy to find and surrounded by shopping and tons of restaurants. Easy in and out.

The center was very clean and comfortable temperature wise and the food court offered lots of options and helpful staff. Of course it depends on what event you are there for as to the vendors, but we had a great time at the sewing expo. Looking forward to next year.

Great conference center that has plenty of parking and hotels nearby. The food staff were friendly and kind. They have added carpet to the main hall, which kept the noise level down. It was much louder in there before they put in the carpet.

-a beautiful and enlightening gathering of Catholic homeschoolers. The conference was well organized, and the efficient design of the Expo and Conference center was well-fitted to the conference.
