It was a great time! The lines were surprisingly quick and it was raining all day but it didn't get too muddy!

My girls 16, 13, and 9 LOVED it here! I thought the 20 or so min between races would be too long and we would lose interest. Nope! By the time the winner is announced, you choose your next horse to bet on (adults only ), go watch the horses walk out onto the track, pet the "working horses" the... More

We were here today to bet on the live racing and watch American Pharaoh win the Preakness. Young or old, watching the live racing at Canterbury is fun. You can sit inside, outside, at track level or on a higher floor with a birds eye view. Kids are welcome. Canterbury also has the largest poker room in the Midwest with... More

Canterbury Park is a great place if you are a horse enthusiast, or enjoy live racing. Being one of the premiere tracks in the upper-midwest, you are going to see some excellent horses and great races! Canterbury is also a great spot to bring the kids! They have some awesome special events days including Bulldog races, wiener dog races &... More

Canterbury Downs is an enjoyable place to spend an evening. The food is great. The prices reasonable. And the racing is fun and exciting. They also offer off track betting and a card room that is open 24/7. Drinks are good too. All and all. A fun place!

First time there. A must if you like to do a little betting. Cashiers were very helpful. Grounds are very pretty.

Oddly enough, this is a very family friendly racetrack! During the racing season, for the kids, there are wild animal races, wiener dog races and a petting zoo. In October, there's a corn maze. There is ample parking or valet, which fills up fast during main events. Twice a year, there are food trucks to look forward to and the... More

We had been to Valleyfair in July, so in August when the our teenage kids wanted to go back we decided to to to Canterbury Park. I wouldn't go every week but it's a fun place to spend an afternoon/evening. Food we had at the restaurant downstairs was quite good.

Fun event. Very organized event. Great facility. If you're into antique flea markets, this is so much fun. Event takes place inside so another plus.
