The Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC), formerly Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center (KFEC), is a large multi-use facility in Louisville, Kentucky, United States. It is overseen by the Kentucky State Fair Board, and is one of the ten largest facilities of its type in the U.S., with over one million square feet of indoor space.

Cardinal Stadium, an onsite baseball/football field with a capacity of up to 47,925, was formerly home to the University of Louisville football and Louisville Redbirds minor league baseball teams. Freedom Hall is one of two onsite arenas, and provides 19,000 seats for the University of Louisville basketball team. Also located onsite is Broadbent Arena, a smaller arena with a maximum capacity of 6,600.

The site, which shares its 19,000 parking spots with the adjacent Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom, falls far short of the capacity of the various KEC facilities. The site has 1,000 permanent horse stalls, 720 temporary stalls and capacity for livestock as well. The limited parking capacity and the one way "ring road" are two commonly cited criticisms of the facilities.
