Welcome to The Meadow


The Meadow Event Park in Caroline County, Virginia, was once a family farm and now a multi-purpose venue — it is home to the State Fair of Virginia and other notable events.

Located just minutes from Richmond and Fredericksburg, an easy drive from Hampton Roads/Virginia Beach and a straight shot from the D.C. area, The Meadow Event Park attracts guests from throughout the commonwealth.

The 331-acre property is rich in history and features a mixture of newly constructed facilities and original structures.  Thoroughbred racing legend Secretariat was born here in 1970. Three years later he blazed his way into Triple Crown history.  Today his birthplace is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register.  Narrated tours have been suspended at this time.
