Where to Stay

Be sure to take advantage of the deals being offered at the host hotel, Springhill Suites by Marriott, for your stay, or any of our other featured hotels listed here.

Tri-State Fairgrounds

With a new location comes new facilities. Starting with the overall layout of the property, the buildings and arenas are conveniently placed within short walking distance of each other and trailer parking. This also means easily accessible stalls, allowing for livestock and horses to be within close distance to the show pen and parking, and making it a quicker trip to saddle your horses. These facilities also allow for improved care of cattle in covered pens with electric waterers.
