Welcome to the Senator Bob Martin Eastern Agricultural Center, conveniently located in the eastern coastal plain of beautiful North Carolina, just off US Highway 64 (Exit 512).
This is a state of the art, multi-facet facility that can be utilized by all. We have completed two phases of the three-phase master plan on a 168-acre site. The coliseum is over 100,000 square feet, which is heated and ventilated. This includes approximately 10,000 square feet of vending concourse. It also boasts a 150’ x 300' arena with permanent seating for 2286. In addition, there is a fully enclosed 75’ x 125’ paddock with an attached 120’ x 240’ covered arena, three outdoor 120’ x 240’ practice rings and five lunging rings.
We now have 456 permanent stalls evenly space throughout six barns. Our newest barns (E & F) include climate controlled bathrooms, improved ventilation and additional heated wash bays. A total of 18 wash bays serve the six barns and the East Building, all supplied by hot and cold water. The facility comes complete with a fiber optic sound system to better meet the needs of each event.
The East Building is capable of hosting an additional 134 stalls or serving as an indoor riding arena.
At the present time, we have 100 RV sites with water, electricity and a 4-station waste disposal site. In addition, we offer a 10,380 square foot Meeting Center Exposition Hall that is climate controlled and adaptable for your needs.
We would like to invite you to come tour our facility at your earliest convenience.
Layovers are welcome! Call: 252-792-5802
