Concessions & Catering

The Virginia Horse Center has teamed up with two of Lexington, Virginia's most renowned, award-winning restaurants, The Red Hen and Pure Eats, to bring that same oustanding food and customer service to the catering and concessions at the Horse Center. 

Pure Eats, owned by John Blackburn and renowned in the Shenandoah Valley for its fresh doughnuts, locally roasted coffee, single-steer beef hamburgers and Homestead Creamery milkshakes, is now operating an outlet in the Anderson Coliseum.

Adding to its traditional menu, Pure Eats at the Virginia Horse Center now serves a range of healthy wraps and salads. Pure Eats will also be supplementing food service outside the Coliseum with mobile concessions at various locations on the Horse Center grounds. Pure Eats will also soon offer a refurbished food truck with greater capabilities to serve hot, fresh and tasty items at multiple locations.

About The Red Hen: Lexington’s first farm-to-table restaurant, opened in September 2008. Its style of down-home fine dining has been featured in the pages of The Washington Post, Southern Living, The Wall Street Journal, Edible Blue Ridge, The Roanoke Times, and Virginia Living. Currently, the Red Hen is rated the #1 Restaurant in Lexington on TripAdvisor.com. The renovation of the late-19th-century red brick, gingerbread-trimmed building won the Founder’s Award from the Lexington Historic Foundation in 2008.
