oswell, VA—Fore- closure auction of Meadow Event Park

Group, has high hopes of finding a buyer who will re- open the State Fair and con- tinue a tradition that dates back to 1854. “The owners did an ex- traordinary job developing this property into a terrific multi-use facility,” said Mot- ley. “The State Fair has a long history and holds lots of memories for so many Vir- ginians. Many organizations have recently been through difficult times and the Fair is no exception, our job is to make those transitions easi- er. Although I am a business- man and auctioneer, I am a Virginian first and am proud to be part of the process of finding a new owner who will keep this tradition alive” Meadow Event Park, pur- chased in 2003, was reno- vated and developed to be the new home of the State Fair after its move from the RIR complex in the City of Rich- mond. The nonprofit’s well- publicized financial struggles led to the group’s bankruptcy protection filing in December 2011. The 331-acre complex in- cludes a 76,130 s/f exhibit hall, a 9,700 s/f Expo Cen- ter. Within the complex are three residences including the Chenery Manor home, a renovated 12,85 s/f special event hall sitting on the foot- prints of the original manor house. In a nod to the property’s history as the former home of world-famous, Triple Crown winning racehorse Secretar- iat, the sale will also include an extensive equine facility, with a barn and stables com- prising 24,000 s/f. In conjunction with the real estate sale are numerous in- tellectual properties includ- ing name and websites for State Fair of Virginia, SFVA, Strawberry Hill Races (with design), Richmond Highland Games &Celtic Festival, and Meadow Highland Games & Celtic Festival. An online only auction of numerous support equipment begins May 15, 2012, and concludes May 24, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. The equipment includes trac- tors, industrial lawn equip- ment, animal pens, and shop equipment. n

in Doswell has been ordered by the secured creditor, end- ing a lengthy struggle by the State Fair of Virginia, LLC. to hold onto the home of the State Fair since 2009.
