Welcome to the 48th Nats fairgrounds website. What we plan to have on here is a guide to the fairgrounds that the 48th Van Nats will be held. We will have pictures of all of the main areas of the fairgrounds, including building rentals and details. We will also try to give you an idea here of what we will be using some of the buildings for and that will include music, games and entertainment. Check back regularly as this will be updated throughout the year until the start of the 48th Van Nats!
Below is a map of the fairgrounds and on the right side of the map are links to pictures of each of the areas indicated on the map, along with info about each place. There are also pages below with groups of like areas and buildings.
You are free to setup camp anywhere in the fairground, not just the campgrounds. There are electrical drops all around the fairgrounds as well as some very nice shade areas if you can live without electricity.
