The conference is held at the Osceola Heritage Park (OHP) in Kissimmee, Florida. OHP is a 120-acre complex with multiple events occurring simultaneously. We suggest you arrive at the opening of registration each day to avoid traffic delays from other events. If arriving after 8:00am, allow an additional 30 minutes drive time through the complex.

Parking fees are covered through the conference so there is no charge for parking, but a PARKING PASS IS REQUIRED. PRINT OUT THE PARKING DECAL AND OHP LAYOUT (two pages) and place the parking decal on your automobile's dashboard. Page two details how to enter OHP for the small farms conference. Please note small farm attendees should enter only through the main entrance.
