Located adjacent to the Livestock Center, the 20-acre Yards will transform from being an oft-vacant series of permanent pens to a convertible space for thousands of animal – or human – visitors. When the pens are removed, this will become a flexible space, allowing for a variety of events, concerts, car shows, sales, festivals and outdoor sporting events.
This space will include:
- 800 pens with removable fencing
- Hard-surfaced, flexible space for concerts, events and festivals, or alternatively, parking for up to 2,700 vehicles
- 1,000-seat stockyard show arena
- Elevated walkways and historic catwalk
