Description

This Barn Appetit event has all the ingredients for a perfect date night at the State Fair! Enjoy a delicious farm-to-fork dinner in Meadow Hall featuring locally sourced foods and craft libations at the historic birthplace of Secretariat. Your ticket also includes admission to the Fair and a free ride on the giant Ferris wheel!

Wendy Yohman of Jake’s Place in Ashland kicks off the evening with her “Southern Comfortable” specialties. She’s even bringing the actual producers who grew or raised the food being served. Here’s a preview of the menu:

  • Arugula salad with goat cheese, beets and walnuts
  • Pulled pork and kale eggrolls – “Pigs in the Grass”
  • Bourbon glazed ribs prepared in Jake’s smoker on the veranda
  • A Grits Station with toppings like maple bacon and cheese
  • Fried green tomatoes and hush puppies
  • Dessert – homemade pound cake and apple cobbler with whipped cream

For craft libations, Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery is releasing its latest Secretariat craft beer just in time for Barn Appetit. There will be a heaping helping of Meadow Stable history for guests who stroll through the galleries and exclusive exhibits and around the original horse barns. Groundshaker, a great-great granddaughter of Secretariat, will be prancing in her paddock, along with Mia the miniature horse, to greet visitors.

A portion of the proceeds from Barn Appetit will benefit the Historic Barn Restoration fund.

Ticket price: $50 per person, must be 21 or older. Ferris wheel ticket included at dinner.
