This past week, news broke of an offer to purchase a portion of the Expo property by the Meijer(R) chain of retail stores. According to local news sources, this was an unsolicited offer for a portion of the Expo grounds, primarily an area used for parking as well as the race track and grandstand. Other buildings, including the equine facilities, would not be affected.

Horse-A-Rama Inc recently announced that we are partnering with the Manitowoc County Expo to replace the building used as the main indoor equine demonstration area for our horse fair/fundraiser. A builder has been chosen for the project, and we are currently working to obtain the additional funds needed. We have been assured that the County fully intends to keep the Expo in its current location long-term, and will continue our work to construct the multi-purpose agricultural barn as planned.

An open house may be scheduled for public comments before any possible sale is finalized. We will do our best to keep you informed on this, and on the building project, as details emerge.
