It's a big show, allocate plenty of time. Of course you have to hit the food court and have a milk shake. You might want to look at the schedule and pick a day that something of interest to you is going on in the large arena, like the horse pulling, square dancing, etc. Kids will love the animals, you'll love the equipment and the wife will love the arts and crafts and such.

Loridr covered the important stuff. We mainly go for the food court and the people watching anymore, but I've spent a lot of time up there over the years as an exhibitor. There is certainly plenty to see, so give yourself plenty of time. The rodeos are always neat to watch, but be prepared for a bigger crowd to wade through those nights.

Donít let the milk shake line fool you. It goes really quick.

Try to hit the food court at off times and not major meal times. It gets packed.

Haven't been to the Farm show since just out of High School when the girlfriend (then wife, then ex-wife) trained and showed horses. My one son is going with the school on a field trip.
I'll not make the Farm show this year, but will definitely be going to the Outdoor Show.

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

I went today for the first time. Big crowd!

Leave extra time for traffic and parking. Be prepared to walk a good distance from the parking lots or wait in line for the shuttle.
