A hardhat tour at Purina Farms Event Center

Welcome to Purina Farms

This afternoon I had the honor of joining Brock Fitzgerald for a hard hat tour (I really had to wear one!) of the new Purina Farms Event Center.  Last march I visited the Purina facility and they had just broken ground for the new building.  Today there is a huge difference – the building is almost weather tight, and looks like it should certainly make the planned opening in September of 2010.

Below are a number of shots taken inside the building today.

This is a photo of the main event hall. This is a clear span building with 45,000 square feet of competition space.

This is the upstairs banquet facility.  Glass windows on both sides will give views of both the competition hall and the grooming and preparation area.

Banquet and catering space for 600!

There will be dog bathing stalls along this wall.

Dog bathing stalls will line this wall in a few weeks.

This is the grooming area!

Dog grooming area - can you believe it!

This will be the cafe.

Future home of the cafe/snack bar.

This is without a doubt going to be the finest dog show arena in the country.  Brock says that they will be open for business in September of 2010.

If you are interested in bringing your event to Purina Farms, contact Brock Fitzgerald at Purina.  He can be reached at 314-882-3232.  Ask him about our special deal on ribbons for events held at Purina Farms – our neighbor in Franklin County, Missouri.

  1. Please keep me informed of the status and projected availability date of the new center. We are excited about the potential to use it for our National Specialty show.

    Thank you
