Sunnyview Exposition Center

The Sunnyview Exposition Center is located on approximately two hundred acres north of Oshkosh and only ten miles south of Neenah. The site hosts a variety of events including horse shows, festivals, trade shows, meetings/training, the County Fair, and Lifest.

The 31,000 sq. ft. Expo building is the largest indoor, year-round facility of its type in the area. It can be divided into three sections to encompass exhibits and seminars with a ticket office, show office, and kitchen. Wedding receptions, meetings, training sessions, and many other annual events take place within the Expo.

The covered arena is a 48,000 sq. ft. facility that can host anything from horse and livestock shows to dog agility events and music festivals. There are no other facilities like it between Madison and Escanaba. Five Barns provide support for the covered arena as well as play host to other types of events. Other support facilities include a toilet/shower facility with exterior wash racks for livestock, a food court building, and an RV waste dumping station. There is electrical and primitive camping, an outdoor show arena, a large stage pad, and abundant parking areas.

Sunnyview Stadium is a large, open event area that can host 30,000+ in front of a state-of-the-art performance stage, with support facilities including a concessions stand, ticket office, restrooms, and a grandstand that can seat 4,600 people.
