A new online portal for submission of exhibitor camping reservation requests is expected to go live at 9 a.m. on the Fair’s website May 1.


A downloadable and printable form will also be available for those who do not wish to utilize the online system. The form will need to be faxed to the Fair.


Campers should choose either the online reservation request system or fax in the paper form.


No camping forms will be distributed or accepted on-site. Camping reservation requests must be made via the new online portal or forms sent in via fax. The Administrative Offices on the Missouri State Fairgrounds remain closed to the public due to COVID-19.


Please note that the State Fair website typically experiences very high traffic volume on the morning the livestock exhibitor camping system goes live. State Fair staff works with our webmaster and site host to be diligent in our efforts to accommodate the hits that the site often experiences during this time. We appreciate your patience and understanding should any situations arise, particularly with the new online reservation request portal.


If you have questions about the status of your reservation after you have submitted your request, please email campgrounds@mda.mo.gov.


Reserved exhibitor campsites will open Sunday, Aug. 9; they are only available for livestock exhibitors, commercial vendors and persons with disabilities.


Complete camping rules and more information are available on the Fair’s website.
