The fair is a good place to visit but you have to like crowds. It takes a long time to get in due to traffic getting backed up, and there is a lot of walking involved. The food choices are amazing however. Lots of variety...More

There is Parking for the BIG E on site or there is parking outside of it all along the street. Parking is 10.00 for all day. I prefer outside easier to get out when you want to leave.
