Army JROTC Drill Championships
INTRODUCTION: The Army Nationals are held in the Kentucky Expo Center (KEC) near the fairgrounds in Louisville, Kentucky. The facility is easy to find just off the interstate. The facility will have a concession stand and scores of restaurants within .5 miles of the facility. It is a gorgeous new building and we have been welcomed by those in charge with open arms. There is a parking charge to gain entry explained below. Please feel free to review the KEC WEBSITE to learn more about this building.
DIRECTIONS, ENTRY & PARKING: Please use the address above to get to the facility. Directions can be found on the KEC Website. Here is a detailed PARKING & ENTRY MAP as well as a GENERAL AREA FACILITY ENTRY MAP to assist in entry. ALL ATTENDEES SHOULD ENTER THROUGH GATE #1 AND PARK IN LOT "A" OR "N" (or overflow areas as needed). Parking is $8.00 for single entry cars, $12.00 for unlimited entry cars (come and go throughout the day), and $20.00 for larger vehicles/buses (these come with unlimited entry). If your bus is not staying, they can drop and go and get a refund with receipt by leaving through Gate 4. Please plan to have cash.
NEARBY FOOD OPTIONS: While there is food in the facility, those looking for better prices and selection at nearby restaurants have many options. Here is a complete LIST of restaurant and drive through establishments all within 1/2 mile of the facility. We would suggest a phone call to the establishment you may wish to use, thereby giving them a call to ensure in advance they will be open and they have the size and other items that meet your groups needs.
