Barto's & Your Indiana State Fairgrounds
At the Indiana State Fairgrounds, one of our goals is to create a smooth event planning process for our clients.
Through Barto's Catering, the Indiana State Fairgrounds features an in-house catering operation that can meet and exceed all event catering
Barto's Catering operates out of the Farm Bureau Building, an 18,645 sq. ft. facility that features an auditorium, exhibit hall
and the recently-renovated Barto's Banquet Hall. Though based in the Farm Bureau Building, our catering partner will serve food and beverage
needs throughout the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
Our outstanding partnership with Barto's Catering and versatile catering options offered
for each event make the Indiana State Fairgrounds an ideal choice for meetings and banquets, weddings and reunions, and formal receptions.
The staff at Barto's Catering, led by owner John Barto and Executive Chef Chip Huckaby, will work with you to create a catering solution that
will meet your specific needs. In addition, Barto's Catering can help organize decorating options to create your total event experience.
