Most of the events I attended at this location had pretty good prices for event entry and buying merchandise. The parking is an added plus if you get there early, otherwise, there is ample parking parking across the street as well. The traffic around this area, during the KY Fair, usually moves very slow, especially at night. All in all, I had no problems attending any event scheduled at this location.

It was great exhibiting here. Vending is a bit spendy but that's about par for the course.

I spent six hours at the Kentucky State Fair. They have so much to do and see you definitely need many hours to take it all in: Flea Market vendors, displays by Kentucky state and county organizations, animal displays, produce displays, shows, contests, etc.

Be sure to review the schedule so you can catch as many of the shows as possible since they offer repeat performances throughout the day. The highlights of the shows were the Frisbee catching dog show, and the comedy high diving act. You can also spend hours going from music tent to music tent listening to a variety of musical acts.

Plenty of food choices available from indoor food courts to outside food courts.

The highlight of the day for me was the Pillsbury Pie Crust Pie Baking Championship. They had forty-five entries. I enjoyed watching the judges decide which pie was worthy of moving on to the national championship.

Plan on going to the Kentucky State Fair, but plan on spending many hours!
