Parking is easy and convenient at the Blair County Convention Center. A surface level lot adjacent to the main entrance accommodates over 260 vehicles and a 5 story parking garage accommodates more than 350 vehicles.

The Blair County Convention Center is also easy to find and to drive to. Located just off of Interstate 99 in Altoona, PA, the center is just a 25 minute drive from the Bedford exit of the PA Turnpike and just a 45 minute drive south of Interstate 80.

"Many of the guests commented on the beautiful facility and immaculate atmosphere the convention center presented. We cannot forget the incredible job done by those who worked so hard to set-up and tear down from the event."
