From the South –
Take your best route to I-75 north. Get off at Bowling Green (exit 181) and turn right onto Wooster St./Bowling Green rd./SR 105 (yup, one road – three names). At the bottom of the overpass, turn left (north) onto Dunbridge rd (the road just before Meijer). Follow Dunbridge north for one block (a country-ish block, so about a mile?) to the stop sign and turn left onto Poe road. Follow Poe rd. for approximately two miles to the Wood County Fairgrounds  and turn into the large parking lot on your left.

From the East or West –
State Route 6 approaches Bowling Green and skirts around the southern edge of the city. This is a good route if coming from the east or the west.  From either direction, take the SR 25 exit and head north into Bowling Green. (Coming from the east, you’ll turn right at the end of the exit ramp to SR 25. Coming from the west, you’ll turn left at the end of the exit ramp to SR 25.) Follow SR 25/Main st. north (past Home Depot, Walmart, etc.) about two miles to Poe Rd. and turn left onto Poe rd.  The Wood County Fairgrounds is about a mile down the road – turn into the large parking lot on your left.

Camping Space

We have RV camping in addition to tent camping space this year!
The hookups for the RV spaces are live and ready to go. If you wish to use the hookups, the fee is $25 per night as set by and paid directly to the Wood County Fairgrounds.
Please note, there will be a horse show going on at the same time as our event, so we probably will not be the only group using this space.
