The DNR’s Natural Resources Building is the place to be during the Indiana State Fair. The fair runs July 29 to Aug. 21, excluding Mondays and Tuesdays.

Located in the northwest area of the fairgrounds, DNR’s building is not only one of the few with air conditioning but also houses the best information, wild animals, and fun. Stop by the Fishin’ Pond, where children ages 5-17 can fish for free.

Check out live raptors daily at 4:30 p.m. at the amphitheater. While you are cooling off inside the DNR building, pick up the latest Recreation Guide, Fishing Guide, and Hunting & Trapping Guide, along with the guides for boating, off-road vehicles and much more
