Kentucky State Fair

Kentucky State Fair

The Kentucky State Fair is fastly approaching and I know each of you play a vital role in Kentucky 4-H during those two weeks in Louisville.  With that said, I was contacted this morning to send out some updates about changes occurring during this year’s Kentucky State Fair. 

  •  Changes include gate entry with express lanes, parking and how Ring Road will be used (you will need to do some investigating on all of these before you attend)
  • Below you will find a new aerial map of the fairgrounds, it is also is on social media so you may have already seen it. 
  • Download the new KY State Fair app which will also help guide you as you come to the fair (Kentucky State Fair – 2017)

 I hope this will help as you come to Louisville. . . the state fair board knows these are a lot of changes being implemented but truly believe they will be great.  Do your research before you arrive, as I know I will be also J, and we will see you in Cloverville.

Thank you!  Have a good day!
