This place is great, if there was ever a weekend it was raining and we didn't feel like getting soaked we would check what was on and usually it involved the expo centre, ranges from car shows, hunting expos, festivals. Definitely worth keeping an eye...More

The place is big, but looks the same from years past. The Bmx track this year was much better. Really much better dirt. The building itself is Worn out. Way to Expensive the cost of renting suites., pricy food too.

I toured during non-fair hours - so want to come back during the fair. The entire fair (minus carnival) is all indoors - the buildings are massive. Very clean and sharp looking.

This expo center is truly HUGE! We attended the NASP archery tournament and it is overwhelming to look around and see how much indoor space it has. There was plenty of room for thousands of archers, their families, and vendors!

A beautiful and expansive building. Large indoor and outdoor area to eat or relax. We were here for the World Robotic Championship and it was the perfect venue for this.

We were there for the National JROTC competition. They had more then enough room for all the cadets. The only down fall was there should of been more seating to eat and more venues for food.
