Expo Expansion

Phase I Aerial - Winter 2007     Phase II Aerial - Spring 2011 


In early spring 2011, we completed our phase two expansion project. The newly expanded facilities include a second covered Arena and Pavilion, a covered Warm-up Arena, a Ballroom facility with meeting space, and expanded parking with additional RV spaces. All of our facilities are connected by a covered walkway, allowing for convenient all-weather access. With the completion of this expansion project, we can offer a greater capacity for larger events and have the capability to host multiple events at one time.

All of the facilities are currently open. Please contact us for more information, or to schedule a tour.
