Alliant Energy Center Renovation Update

Due to the tight construction schedule and the issues revolving around winter construction in Wisconsin, the Alliant Energy Center has decided to start construction on the two new, state-of-the-art Pavilions in April of 2014 rather than in October of 2013.

Construction will start immediately following the 2014 Midwest Horse Fair and the 2014 World Dairy Expo will be the first event to utilize the new Pavilions.

The size and scope of the project will remain the same with the removal of 11 current barns and replacing them with 2 new Pavilions totaling 290,000 square feet.

The new Pavilions will be completed before the start of the 2015 Midwest Horse Fair on April 17, 18, & 19. We hope you can all join us in 2015 as we unveil the Pavilions and the new look of the Midwest Horse Fair and the Alliant Energy Center.
