I have gone to MANY events at the Fredericksburg Expo. It is a large venue that can accommodate lots of people. Many people also have dances there, too. The food there is pretty good but not as good as the Fredericksburg Hospitality House.

This was my third visit to the SGK Show Fredericksburg Expo and Conference Center. The vendors were knowledgeable, products were great, and offered additional firearm classes on-site. Great experience overall!

I have been to many events here! Gun Shows, Outdoor Shows, Home and Garden... It is your pretty basic Expo with concrete floors, bathrooms in the back, and a small concessions. I always dress warm in the Winter but it can get a little warm inside with all the people so good to layer up! Staff have always been pleasant!

Visited here for the Boat show and recently for the RV show. The Expo is easy to get to, always very clean and the staff managing/working these events are always pleasurable. We love coming here and seeing what is being offered and support the local community. Can't wait for the upcoming shows like the soon to be, Gun Show.

I have gone there for a few different types of shows and enjoyed them. If you can you will save a lot of time pre-buying the tickets to any event there. We were so excited when we got to got to the front of the block long line…It was simple to do.

It is a typical conference in the fact that it is big open space. It is built like a large warehouse thin walls, high ceilings, and a cheap roof. It is EXTREMELY loud in here. It is beginning to show it age and it looks like it needs some maintenance. But it does a good job of staying routinely booked... More

Have been in here for guns shows, political rally's and Home and garden shows. Nice layout and clean facilities. Small food court with a variety of foods. Easily accessible to the ongoing events and has tables to sit for a quick meal. Large parking lot with several flow over areas.

Nothing special - has a multitude of events. Something for everyone, we've been there for the runner's expo and safety day events. Parking is free and plentiful, with easy access to hotels nearby.
