WHAT The North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) was approved through the Kentucky Healthy at Work initiative to host a modified show this year. NAILE is the largest all-breed, purebred livestock exposition in the world and runs Nov. 3-19, 2020 at the Kentucky Exposition Center.

NAILE will enact new policies to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Changes include:

  • Attendance will be restricted to participants creating a significant reduction in those on-site.
  • Participants will go through mandatory temperature checks and events will be spread throughout the facility.
  • The 2020 North American Championship Rodeo and the Country Store are canceled and will return next year.
  • 2020 School Tours are canceled but will return in 2021.
  • Livestock will be housed across more than 750,000 sq. ft. of space.
