    From I-5 go East on Highway 512 and exit at Meridian.

    Right on Meridian and almost immediately turn Right onto 15th then drive under the freeway and turn Right again into the Fairgrounds on 5th.  You'll turn Right again from 5th and check in at the staffed entrance gate.  ("Hi. We're loading in for the BBQ Playoffs")  Get your pass and SLOWLY follow that perimeter road to our competition site which will eventually be on your left.


    RV Registration Form

    Send directly to the Fair but we suggest calling them to pay with a credit card so they don't have to wait for a check to clear the bank causing you to pay the higher rate after April 3rd.
