Ky State Fair: Parking and Tickets

Kentucky State Fair officials rolled out new a parking map this year. They will continue to use express lanes this year to help people get to the fairgrounds quickly and safely.

Louisville Metro Police said to expect some closures at Gate One near Phillips Lane as traffic gets heavy on the interstate, but you can find other gates by typing them directly into Google Maps.
