This place is amazingly big. We visited for the G.I.E. Show this week. They have ample restrooms, food options and lots of parking. If you're going here to a show make sure that you wear comfortable shoes because you'll definitely need them.

The Exposition was a great venue for the Club Tournaments we played this summer. There are excellent parking, nice eating places and more than adequate restroom facilities.

Did a trade show here and it was good and convenient since we stayed at the adjoining hotel with a connecting bridge. Lovely.

I’ve been to State Fair annually for a decade & the Flea Market intermittently for 20 years. The KY State Fair & Expo is still a gem in the community. Lots of parking, ample bathrooms, etc.
