The Equestrian Arena at the Steele County Fairgrounds was complete in time for the 2014 annual fair!

The almost 30,000 square foot Arena and Exhibition Building is now complete at the Steele County Free Fairgrounds in Owatonna, Minnesota (see rendering above). Also referred to as Phase One of a 100,000+ Square Foot Multi-Purpose Livestock facility; it is a pre-engineered metal building which will be home to Equine Stalling Space that could total up to 170 stalls. The building also has a large clear span exhibition area that could be used for judging, an indoor Rodeo, or even storage of large vehicles during the cold winter months. The remaining not-built phases could bring the animal capacity up to over 500 if all available stalls are utilized.

 

This facility was conceptualized during the original K/O Fairground Master Plan study for the Steele County Fair complete a few years ago. The Plan included analysis of 50 buildings on the 70+ acre property. The $18 million Master Plan resulted in recommending a 155,000 SF Multi-Purpose Equine focused Complex. This building which was Phase 1, was complete prior to the 2014 fair. This new structure was designed to be a part of a series of interconnected exhibit spaces and multi-use buildings that ultimately could be used for hosting any number of expos, trade shows, animal shows, or events.
