INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– The forecast is calling for rain this weekend , but that won’t stop the 2016 Indiana State Fair. Officials are reminding Fairgoers that there are plenty of indoor, covered attractions and exhibits, on the 250-acre fairgrounds to provide shelter when the weather won’t cooperate.
Most of the livestock barns are connected, so visitors can see the world’s largest boar, champion sow and litter, breeding sheep and goats, the World Famous Budweiser Clydesdales, and dairy calves with minimal or little time spent outside. Other indoor attractions along Main Street include the Beer, Wine & Spirits Exhibition, the Visit Indiana Bicentennial Pavilion dedicated to Celebrating Indiana Bicentennial, the Indiana Arts building showcasing several 4H exhibits, the Purdue Extension Agriculture/Horticulture building, home of the Indiana Market Place and Exposition Hall.
The north side of the fairgrounds is home to other indoor and covered attractions, like the DNR building, TAIKOPROJECT, Goat Mountain, and Pioneer Village. Covered tractor shuttles provide easy transportation and an opportunity to cool off.
State Fair officials have several people and systems in place to keep Fairgoers updated on the weather conditions at the Fairgrounds during their visit, and on our new Indiana State Fair App.
