Missouri State Fair livestock exhibitors interested in camping will be able to submit camping reservations starting at 9 a.m. on May 3 via an online portal or by submitting a downloadable and printable form, both available on the Fair’s website at Campers should choose either the online reservation request system or fax in the paper form.

For campers using the online reservation system:
The online portal will be available on the Fair’s website starting at 9 a.m. on May 3 for the submission of exhibitor camping requests, but payment will not be collected from the online system. Once the reservation has been accepted, a member of the State Fair camping staff will contact campers to obtain payment information. Payment will not be collected nor processed until reservations have been accepted and confirmed.

For campers using the downloadable and printable form:
The form will need to be filled out in full, including payment information, and must be faxed to the Fair. Only send the fax one time. Multiple submissions jam the fax machine and could result in multiple payments processed.

No camping forms will be distributed or accepted on-site. Camping reservation requests must be made via the online portal or forms sent in via fax.

Officials says the State Fair website typically experiences very high traffic volume on the morning the livestock exhibitor camping system goes live. State Fair staff members work with the webmaster and site host to be diligent in their efforts to accommodate the hits that the site often experiences during this time.

If you have questions about the status of your reservation after you have submitted your request, e-mail

Reserved exhibitor campsites will open Sunday, August 8; 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.
