Most mapping sites try to take you to the extension offices, not the outside exits to the building the fair is in.

Park in the parking lot off 21st ST SW (entrances to the lot are on both sides of the Watertown Ice Arena), NOT off Kemp Ave (see photo).

Once you have parked, enter the fair at Entrance H or Entrance I.
