More Than Just A Fairgrounds

Ask most people about the Piedmont Interstate Fairgrounds and chances are good they will describe it as a fun place that draws some 50,000 people each October to the annual fair serving Spartanburg, Union, Cherokee, Laurens, Polk, and Rutherford counties. But we are much more than just a fairground.

We have some of the best facilities and logistics in the state for events of all kinds. We have an all-weather commercial display and recreational center for a variety of activities that features 23,500 square feet of floor space. We also have a grandstand area that seats 2,500 and an additional 6,000 square feet for agricultural exhibits. There are some 10 acres of fenced, open space immediately adjacent to our buildings and some 6 acres of open space in front of the grandstand.

We also offer virtually unlimited parking both outside and inside the fairgrounds with security services available for the protection of patrons and their vehicles during events. The fairgrounds are well illuminated.

Our facilities and complimentary services make the fairgrounds the ideal venue for functions such as trade shows and exhibits, special company functions like annual parties and picnics, revivals and musical programs, jamborees and conventions, sports activities, circuses, fundraising events for civic and charitable groups, auto, boat, and motorcycle shows, dog, cat and reptile shows, machinery shows, and flea market type sales.

We have a varied rate schedule that can be tailored to your needs and the services you require. Our personnel can also offer valuable advice on organizing your events based on years of experience. We meet with all clients and groups to answer any questions and explain the advantages of securing the fairgrounds for your next event or program.

Contact the fair office the next time you need space and convenience to discuss your options. We would love to serve you.
