The largest single event in the State, the Fair annually attracts approximately 350,000 people from all 105 Kansas counties and several other states.

The Fair offers tremendous opportunities for commerce with over 1,000 commercial vendor locations; for competition, with close to 30,000 entries in various competitive exhibit departments; for education, through its Kansas' Largest Classroom field trip program; and for entertainment with strolling and stage entertainment in addition to the national acts performing at the Nex-Tech Wireless Grandstand.

In addition to the annual State Fair, the Fairgrounds' facilities are utilized throughout the year for a wide array of events, including horse and livestock shows, trade shows, flea markets, wedding receptions, family reunions, and company picnics, to name just a few.
