STATE FAIR OF VIRGINIA SCHEDULING EQUINE EVENTS FOR 2012 FAIR
Contact: Elaine J. Lidholm, 804.786.7686
The State Fair of Virginia is back and will hold the annual event September 28 through October 7, 2012. The Fair is reinstating equine events at its facility in Doswell, Virginia, in Caroline County, and the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services encourages horse owners to participate.
Due to the bankruptcy of the former State Fair, many agricultural groups and livestock shows made other plans for their shows and exhibitions this year. But the fair is back in business under the ownership of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation and Universal Fairs LLC, and they are ready to welcome horses and their owners to the park in Doswell. Given the historic association between the park, formerly known as Meadow Farm, and Triple Crown winner Secretariat, a full slate of equine events is a priority at the new State Fair of Virginia.
Horse owners interested in competing in the fair or in holding events should contact email@example.com. An online registration form is available at statefairva.org. Interested parties should contact the fair or fill out the online form by August 9, 2012, to assist in creating a complete schedule of equine events.
