I have always loved coming to the Ozark Empire Fair. There is so much to do whether it is for the fair or a car show to crafts and antiques. Love coming to the rodeo and love the grandstand!

I do trade shows, and I've been to this venue several times. Overall good parking for vendors, good access to loading doors for bringing product in and out, and plenty of decently equipped bathrooms. Show food is typically pricey, but everything that I've tried is actually better quality than a lot of show venues, so there's that.

Going to the Fair is great, but the fairgrounds stays busy all of the time. Antique shows, gun shows, farm shows and much more give the place a good use all year long.

I was here, with a volunteer from our agency, at the biannual Convoy of Hope. It looked like a lot of needy people were able to get help at a central place

My wife and I attended the Gourd Festival for the first time. She took several classes on crafting with gourds, and was able to make connections with other crafters and vendors. Great experience. Amazing creations out of gourds!

Was not very impressed with this fair. Very small. If you don't want to ride the rides there is not much to do. I think they should have more exhibits and things to buy.

Went for a rodeo. Nice grounds. Lots of room for different things. Parking lot was decent too. Bathroom was okay. The arena was kinda off center and narrow so it was awkward for barrel racing.

We were in Springfield for the weekend and had some time to kill so stopped in to see what all the traffic was all about. Free parking and free admission. If you are a farmer it would have been AWESOME......for a city boy like me I still enjoyed looking around. The fairgrounds are spectacular. would like to be there during... More
