Ike Hamilton Expo Center

The Ike Hamilton Expo Center, or “The Ike”, as it has come to be called was designed with comfort and convenience of sports competitors in mind. Perfect for western equestrian events like team roping, cutting, and barrel racing; “The Ike” is also just right for everything from concerts to remote control car races.  

Conveniently located just off Interstate 20, the Ike is surrounded by amenities. The facility boasts 7 acres under one roof, with a climate controlled main arena with handicap accessible seating for 2900. Add over 500 stalls with electricity, 180 fully-functioning RV slots, pens, warm-up areas, wash racks and an additional outdoor arena; you have the perfect local for any equestrian, cattle or trade show. Throw in the meeting rooms and catering services and you have the perfect spot for any training or gathering.

The calendar of events is ever changing with updated information so please check back with us often. You'll be surprised at all the fun, family-friendly outtings available at the Ike and many of the events are open free to the public. We will see you soon!
