“Awesome car shows”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Been there for a couple of guns Expos but mostly for the Hot Import Nights and DUB Show and especially for the car Shows this is a great place. they usually have a big stage and space for just a lot of cars.
Havent been there for any other Events but the Hot Import Nights are a Must if you like cars.

“If you like biiiiig rooms, this is the place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

If you have too much cash in your wallet and love big rooms, look no further! I have been to the boat shows, gun shows, golf shows, home shows, etc. They all cost a lot of money, but you get to be in a GREAT BIG ROOM so it is easily worth it.

“If you want a gun show, faux gifts, some crafts”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Avoid the gun show unless you like watching the NRA at its worst. Police find many felons buying guns.
Jewelry, arts and craft vary in quality with the organizer

“An average venue. Nothing particularly special. Nothing particularly bad except dirty restrooms with no supplies.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

The Dulles Expo Center hosts craft fairs, home shows, career fairs, trade shows, big flea markets, boat shows, hobby shows etc. This venue used to have two halls, but one was converted to a Walmart. I have attended numerous events of several different kinds in both halls, and the remaining hall is definitely the better of the two original halls. 


This place is average. Usually the display floors are reasonably clean. The trash cans spread throughout the show floors are emptied from time to time. The restrooms often become very dirty during shows--particularly the busy shows--and they are neither kept clean nor are the paper and soap supplies replenished in a timely manner. This has been the case for the past couple decades or so since I have been attending events at Dulles Expo Center.



The food outlet serves okay food that is overpriced because they've got a lock on the concession. It's better to walk to one of the nearby fast food or casual dining joints.



Access has improved hugely since Virginia DOT completed highway work on Route 28.



Parking is much better now that the Expo Center (or maybe Walmart?) has invested in additional parking spaces. If you attend a very popular show, though, expect to have to drive into the nearby industrial park to find street parking.

“It's Just a Typical Expo Center”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Nothing exciting about this place. It's a typical expo center where they have events, gun shows, RV shows, boat shows, and craft shows.
