Canterbury is a great late week or weekend get away, I love going there in summer when they have the night racing and sitting outside, it's only $6 to get in and I personally bet no more than $5 per race so a very affordable night under the lights. Inside seating also available if the weather is not cooperating. Food... More

We had never been to the racetrack to bet on the ponies before. It was so fun (we are not gamblers, normally), but wanted to check it out, since our hotel was right by it. Everyone was so helpful and nice. Since we were newbies, everyone was great to help explain how it all goes. It is a very nice... More

WE went to Canterbury for Soundset and were very impressed with the workings of the staff, including the traffic! (Traffic was so organized and easy to get in and out). The grounds were nice, and smart about the set up and the space between everything. Can't wait to go back next year!

Six bucks for hours of entertainment (plus wagers). Minimum two dollars and easy to bet with machines everywhere. Inexpensive beer, bands, and other special events. Casual atmosphere to wander around grounds. This place is beautiful and huge and amazing! Plus every staff member was so kind and helpful. Must visit and often

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!
