    Traveling from I-75 North/South (from Ocala/Sarasota area)

    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. Entrance Gate: Traveling north on I-75, take Exit #260 (B) and merge LEFT onto DR MARTIN LUTHER KING JR BLVD (aka SR-574 West). Traveling south on I-75, take Exit #260 and merge RIGHT onto DR MARTIN LUTHER KING JR BLVD. Go west for 2.5 miles and pass the light at U.S. Hwy. 301. Turn right into the Fairgrounds entrance.

    Orient Rd. Entrance Gate: Follow the same directions as when traveling to the MLK, Jr. Blvd. entrance, however keep proceeding on MLK, Jr. Blvd. to the next light which is ORIENT RD. Make a right at Orient Road. There will be a sign for the Fairgrounds entrance on the right-hand side. Check in at the Security Guard gate for entry.

    U.S. Hwy. 301 Entrance Gate: Follow the same directions as when traveling to the MLK, Jr. Blvd. entrance, however make a right-hand turn at the light at U.S. Hwy. 301. The Fairgrounds entrance will be on the left-hand side across from the Holiday Inn Express and the Winghouse Restaurant.
