Designated parking can only be accessed by visiting Gate 2. All other gates are Kentucky State Fair access only.
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.
