You never know what new vendors may show up in any year, and there are old favorites to visit.
Great food to go with the shopping.
Sorry I still want to call it the Hippodrome
I still call it Mexican village, even though it is so much more with all the different vendors.

Great Fair Get-Aways by Jill Hentges
Fine Arts Building
This is the get-away to cultured culture. Slip into the Fine Arts Building and slip away from the manic pace for a bit and enjoy a relaxed and refined stroll amidst the beautiful works of fine artists. you almost forget you are at a fair until you recognize the ribbons. The bathrooms in here are mighty fine too.
Sneak away with your roasted corn and sit among the commemorative bricks and gorgeous landscaping. This is a beautiful spot to sit and catch your breath.
Front Row at the Bandshell
Park yourself in the front row of the bandshell and enjoy top notch entertainment all day long. The eclectic combination of local artists and national acts is a treat from sun up to sundown.
On a Burlap Sack Rolling the Giant Slide
Saving the best for last, there's no get-away quite like escaping your chronological age and time by triggering a flashback down the giant slide. Hold on tight and be sure to time your screams with the placement of the dangling microphones.
