“Good events all year.”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

The Ozark Empire Fairgrounds hosts a lot of events all year. They could use a little updating on the grounds, but it is always fun to visit the Fair in August.

“Lots of Shade.”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Were at the fairgrounds for an NSRA car show. They had lots of clean restrooms. Most of the places to eat were open and the prices were reasonable. People were very friendly.

“The fair is awesome here!!!”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Our whole family loves the Ozarks Empire Fair! It's a bit pricey but sooo much fun. There really is something for everyone. Rides, games and even free music shows. I'd recommend it to anyone.

“Expos at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

I love this venue. The E-Plex has a west hall, east hall, and a smaller center hall. Did a show there recently with easy parking, lots of light, and excellent foot traffic. The Ozark Empire Fairgrounds hosts all kind of shows during the year including the KGBX Women's Show, Gun Shows and the summer fair. The fair is so much fun! The grandstand area hosts fabulous shows by would class entertainers, tractor pulls, antique car shows, and even The American Cancer Association's Relay for Life. My opinion is that everyone should come out to the fair!
