This place lets something called the Alabama horse council put on a event every year . Do not waste your time or money . Also if you have any value in your horse I wouldn't take it here . This place is run like absolute kaos . Horriable announcer can't even get it right . The barns are super run... More

Seats are spaced too close together. I understand maximizing the seating but with a small child whose feet don't touch the floor the person in front kept getting there head kicked. It wasn't intentional just the spacing of the seats.

It has been a while since I visited it but it is a good place to go, and they have lots of activities all the time.

I've been to runs, fairs and expos at the garret coliseum and am never disappointed. It's a great place for events.

We went for a concert and are used to venues in Atlanta... needless to say, this venue is in some need of an overhaul. There was no air running and the smell of the fried food they were selling permeated the building. It is a small venue which is nice because you can park close, but be prepared to pay... More

Was at the fairgrounds for a scholarship presentation. Ended up with free tickets to the rodeo. It was the first time in years we'd been to the rodeo there. Mainly b/c the tickets are so high! The announcer no longer rides around on horseback. He stands at a table by the bucking shoots. Only 1 bareback rider... announcer said "the... More

Enjoy attending the rodeo there every year. But this year the rodeo did not seem to be nearly as good as in years pass. The clowns were not fun, to announcer riding around on the horse. Seem like it was cut a little short. Was not nearly packed full like I have seen it in the pass. We have been... More
