Prepare Ahead for the 2023 Midwest Horse Fair
To prepare for your commute, traffic will be heavy around the grounds on Friday and Saturday. If you're attending Midwest Horse Fair, make sure to allow plenty of time to access the grounds, use the Rusk Avenue or Olin Avenue gates – follow directional signs on the Beltline and on John Nolen Drive. All 4 gates will be open as well.
Note: Most traffic congestion will be on Friday due to it being a work day and Saturday between 8:00am - 1:00pm.
