Trainfest« Back to Events
It’s America’s largest operating model railroad show! It’s four football fields’ worth of serious train fun, with over 70 highly creative scenic railroads. Kids from 5 to 99 can run the trains at many of them, part of more hands-on opportunities than ever before! Build a Memory in the expanded Kids’ Activity Zone filled with Free crafts, new make ‘n takes, the “Junior Engineer” program, and plenty of train-themed fun!
Hobbyists can attend a variety of clinics, there’s a photo contest, and opportunities to buy and see models, from locomotives to accessories.
Rounding out this spectacular show are model train manufacturers and retailers from coast-to-coast. Trainfest has something for everyone in its 230,000 square feet of display area. Discounted advanced tickets available online.
You’ll find Trainfest at the Exposition Center inside Wisconsin State Fair Park in West Allis. The Expo Center is right at the corner of Highway 59/Greenfield Avenue and Highway 181/84th Street. I-94, U.S. 18, I-41/U.S 45, and Highway 100 all bring you close!
