Hutchinson has been the site of the official Kansas State Fair since 1913. The Fairgrounds is located at 2000 N. Poplar, Hutchinson.
If you’re coming from Wichita, it’s easy to get to Hutchinson:
1 – Take K-96 West until you get to the Yoder exit. Head north on Yoder road into Hutchinson, past the airport and it will turn into 17th Street. This road will take you right to the fairgrounds. If you want to avoid congestion during busy times, cut north to 30th Street and then come into the north side of the grounds on Plum or Main.
2- If you’re aiming for the west or northwest side of the grounds, consider taking K-96 to South Hutchinson and continue north to downtown Hutchinson, where you can take either Adams Street or Main Street.
3 – Take I-35 North to Newton and head west on Highway 50 to the Yoder Road/Airport Road exit. Exit right and head north past the airport where it turns into 17th Street. This road will take you straight to the fairgrounds.
