The much talked about Floyd Auto Fair will be making a return to Chantilly Farm on May 11-12, 2013. The event's lead promoters, Chasing SS Cars of Willis, will no doubt be putting together a can't-miss show!
For those who weren't able to attend the last Floyd Auto Fair, the event focuses on classic cars, trucks, motorcycles and ratrods, with trophies being awarded in a variety of different categories. In addition to that, this event promises to have more classic automotive parts than you can shake a stick at!
So, mark your calendars for May 11-12, 2013, and plan on bringing the whole family! We'll post more details as they become available. In the meantime, if you have questions about the upcoming show or would like to participate in some way, feel free to call KC or Erik at 540-789-7898 or email them at email@example.com

The 1st Annual Floyd Auto Fair held at Chantilly Farm on August 25-26 was a huge success! Attendance and participation at the inaugural event exceeded the expectations of all who were involved and organizers are excited to begin planning similar events in the near future.
Erik Herdman and KC Murphy of ChasingSSCars were the lead promoters for the event and were able to bring together a wide range of people in the community to help make the event happen.
Murphy commented: "Saturday
was an amazing day at Chantilly! There were over 100 cars in the show
plus cruise-in cars and almost 100 swap meet vendors...there
was over 700 people that came to see the show plus all the
participants. Thank you so much to everyone that came and a REALLY BIG
THANK YOU to all that helped make Saturdays show run smoothly!"
***EVENT CANCELLATION NOTICE*** Due to
unexpected scheduling conflicts with lead actress Tippi Hedren, the
"Night of Good' fundraiser event scheduled for Saturday, September 15 at
Chantilly Farm has been cancelled. We will keep you posted as we have more
details and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
Hollywood is coming to Floyd and we couldn't be more excited! Classic film star Tippi Hedren, known for her leading roles in such classics as Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds' and 'Marnie', will be starring in the upcoming feature film 'House of Good and Evil' that will be shooting in Floyd this fall.
The producers of the upcoming film have partnered with local businesses and individuals to host 'A Night of Good with Tippi Hedren', an event slated to raise money for the Floyd County Humane Society, the Shambala Preserve, and the Roar Foundation. The latter two organizations were founded by Hedren and focus on providing sanctuary for large cats and animals.
Tippi Hedren will be making an appearance at the event which takes place from 6pm until 9pm at Chantilly Festival Farm in Floyd. Local restaurateur Natasha Shishkevich will be providing a gourmet selection of foods, and local beer and wine will be available for sale. Music is being provided by local entertainers.
"We can't express how happy we are to have the opportunity to be a part of this event", said Jason Gallimore of Chantilly Farm. "It's truly been incredible to see how so many people in the Floyd community have come together to help the filmmakers with anything that they've needed--it's a great example of the fantastic community spirit that we have here in Floyd County."
A silent auction at the event will feature some remarkable film memorabilia and attendees will even be given the chance to bid on having a role in the film! A separate auction item will feature a day for two on the film set, complete with lunch with the cast and crew!
Tickets for the event are $25 and can be purchased at the Floyd County Chamber of Commerce located in the Village Green in Downtown Floyd. For more information call 540-745-4407 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
