If you're coming from the west, you certainly don't want to go to Fort Wayne. That will add nearly two hours to the trip.

If you follow the Indiana Toll Road to Exit 72 (US31 / US20 near the South Bend Airport) you can then come east on US20, most of which is very good multi-lane divided highway. Stay on US20 until you get to US33, then go south on 33 into Goshen. At Main Street you'll make a right at a traffic light, go past the County Courthouse, then about two blocks later make a left at another light at CVS Pharmacy, staying on US33 the whole time. When you get to the traffic light at Goshen High School, make a left onto Monroe Street (County Road 34) and go about 1/2 mile to the fairgrounds.

You can also stay on the Toll Road to Bristol / Highway 15 and come south, but it will add about 10 miles to the trip, and a lot of the road is two-lane.

Coming from the east on the Toll Road I'd get off at the Middlebury exit (Exit 107) and go south on Highway 13 (once you get into town it's all freshly paved). Continue south on 13 until you get to a T-intersection. Turn right on County Road 4 (13 goest to the left) and go about a mile and a half to the blinking light at CR 35. Turn left and go to the first stop sign at CR 34. Turn right on CR 34 and continue to the fairgrounds.

Coming from the south up through Fort Wayne, I'd take US 33 all the way from Fort Wayne up to Goshen.

The only time I screwed up on the trip last year was the I-80/I-94 split with the I-80/I-90 merge. Here a map of that crazy area.

I looked on the Indiana toll road website and it looks like the toll from Portage to Bristol is about $14.00 for 4 axles with no Indiana toll tag. It is probably worth the expense to avoid the smaller roads and small town stops.

The goofy intersection shown on Lakebucky's map (and yes, it's REALLY a dumb design) is at Exit 16 in Indiana.
