Built in 1928 and renovated in 2003, Cottonwood Court was originally built as the fair's Motor Show Building, displaying the latest automobiles.

With nearly 100 years of rich history, its high ceilings, clean lines, abundant natural light and red brick make it an ideal locale for a classic, traditional or nostalgic wedding celebration. In addition to its stunning finishes, this architectural gem features 11,200 square feet of open, flexible space on the main floor alone.

The building is centrally located on the fairgrounds and is now home to the food court during the Kansas State Fair.

Seating for 800 people (oval tables and black plastic chairs) is included in rental cost. Depending on room layout, maximum seating capacity is around 1300-1350. Round tables are used in this facility but rectangle banquet tables are available for food and beverage if needed.
