6 Tips to a Better Parking Experience
  • Arrive early and beat the crowd.
  • Check Google maps or Waze for traffic backups and avoid them.
  • Check each Gate’s GPS address above and pick the one with the least traffic.
  • Park for free starting Friday at 5 pm thru Sunday – across from Gate 1.
  • Know you’re in good hands – LMPD directs traffic for the State Fair.
  • Once you’ve parked, look for the free trams with 11 stops throughout the grounds.

RIDE YOUR BIKE

Bicycle racks are provided at every gate free of charge – riders just need to bring their own locks. The bicycle corral is at Gate 4 in Lot H.

PARK YOUR RV

Overnight RV parking is restricted to Lot F behind Cardinal Stadium (electric and water hookups are not available). Parking is $20 per night and sites are first-come, first-served.

HOW TO GET HERE

The Kentucky Exposition Center is located at the junction of I-65 and I-264 (937 Phillips Lane) in Louisville. “Fair/Expo Center” signs on both interstates lead to the Main Gate. To beat traffic, you may want to try entering Gates 2 or 4 on Crittenden Drive – or Gate 6 on Preston Highway.
