State Fair Park Construction

The buildings and grounds at State Fair Park have undergone many renovations over the years to accommodate the associations, manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers using our facilities to reach more than two million consumers each year.

Current construction progress and information on future State Fair Park improvements can be found here.

Bennett Event Center

Construction on the 290,000 square-foot Expo Center, funded by MAPS 3, began in December 2014 and is expected to take approximately 18 months to complete.  The new building will offer, among other amenities, 200,000 square-foot of contiguous floor space.

The Expo Center will offer current State Fair Park clients the ability to expand and enhance their events, while bringing new national and international shows to Oklahoma. Once completed, the building will be the largest event space in Oklahoma City.

Construction has been completed on the new parking lots and other site improvements that will compliment the new building.
