About C Bar C Expo Center

C Bar C Expo Center, owned by Carl and Cindy Harlan of Waynetown, Indiana, is quickly becoming Indiana’s number 1 choice for equine and livestock shows. C Bar C is known for its friendly staff, great homemade food, and clean facility. The entire barn is cleaned and sanitized before every show to help promote the health of the horses and other livestock that attend our events. In 2019 C Bar C went solar and is now run completely from our solar field that sits behind the Arena. Setting this facility u[p for generations to come.

In January of 2015 C Bar C hosted its first National Tractor Pullers Association (NTPA) Winter Nationals. The facility is home to the world’s largest indoor track consisting of 320ft with a smoke tube. This had never been done before and it went off without a hitch. This event is one of the most exciting happenings the town of Cloverdale has ever seen. C Bar C’s Invitational NTPA Winter Nationals already rated in the top 5 indoor pull in the nation!
IN 2018 the Indiana Stock showed moved to C Bar C and has now become and annual show.
