“Great place for the gun show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

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 some great bookings and great fire works.

“Don't go if you don't like DRUNKS & PUNKS”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

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 into all that be my guest but, you won't catch me there....

“Discriminates sadly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

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.

“small venue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

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.

“Dog Show - grounds were nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

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 trash barrels too for tossing out trash and dog poop bags too -- always like that so people are more inclined to pick up after their dogs.

Would have liked the drains in the grassy areas to not be included in the dog show rings in the future, but that would be up to the show superintendent rather than the actual facility.

Was happy this year was cooler than in the past -- those 90+ degree dog shows are difficult!
