Came for farmers market.

Large beautifully landscaped racetrack. Came for farmers market. Not many vendors however. Besides horseracing, not much else to do here.

Well this past Sunday Aug 9, 2015 was quite the surprise. I have never seen the Security Guards in such a huff. Being Canadian, I am so happy our Security Guards don't carry guns as I believe this past Sunday they would have taken them out. For years going I have never seen signs posted that dogs are not allowed... More

My family used to make a day at the races an annual event. Thirty years ago it was a fun, dress-up kind-of event. Today it is very different but for anyone who likes horse races I would recommend a visit to Fort Erie. It's a B track but still a fun afternoon. They even have a craft and food market.

Great day at the track. The weather was hot, the food was great and the beer was cold. This is one of the best and well kept horse racing traps in Canada.

The Fort Erie Race Track is a fantastic place to bring your friends for the day. They also have special events going on and Arts & Crafts. A lot to explore at the Race Track.

This was my first experience at a race track. The races were exciting and the horses were beautiful. Betting was convenient. Food and beverages were readily available. It was Family Day and we went with relatives including children.
