Tonie Stevens | Director, Complex Events
Tonie has been serving as Richmond Raceway’s Director of Events since October, 2022. She cut her “event” teeth planning elaborate tailgate parties with her mom for steeplechase horse racing. Tonie shares, she learned early on that good planning, attention to detail, and passion makes for a great event; and a joyous event can create memories and traditions that last a lifetime and span generations. At Style Weekly Media, she developed and produced large- scale festivals from HOGTOBER, RVA Earth Day Festival, and ShadROCK Music Festival to smaller more intimate gatherings, luncheons and dinners. Her success in event production led to her being selected to be a street level producer/marshall for the 2015 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and the Fan-zone venue Chief at Libby Hill for the 2015 UCI Road World Championship races. One of her all-time career highlights was working on the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, GA.
Tonie has brought insurmountable enthusiasm to Richmond Raceway, putting her intense passion to work to book, create and facilitate wonderful events.
