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.

Love the race track, love the horses - reserve a table in the restaurant if it's a hot day and you'll have your very own tv to watch up close! Food is ok - service is fantastic! Check out the horses in the winner's circle - go to the paddock before the races. A fun day for all!

Canterbury is such a fun, unique experience in the Twin Cities area. It is only $5 to get in, with Bargain Thursdays being $1...although I'm sure most would pay more. My husband and I enjoying going with a group of friends around dinner time. It is easy to spend 5-6 hours + just hanging out around the track. Watching the... More

Canterbury Park is my favorite summer pastime. Why? It's cheap entertainment, I love the horses, and Canterbury is a great clean facility. You can sit on benches, close to the dirt track, or sit inside where it's cooler. Travel out to the paddock to see the horses before the race and get close enough to the Winners Circle after your...

Fun place to go for a day or evening. You can be indoors or outside. Betting is easy and this can be as expensive or cheap as you make it. Plenty of seating inside and out. Big windows and even in the winter it is fun to do the OTB betting.

Canterbury Park is a fun way to spend an evening at the track. You can go down by the stalls where the horses are saddled, and you can watch them walk around the ring right before jockeys go up. Betting is pretty simple, and every paid admission ($6) gets the program of races and horse statistics. The outside area allows... More

Spent my very first time at the track in air conditioned comfort with a table right at the finish line. Could bet and order drinks and food without leaving the table. View the race on a monitor or look up through the big full window area to see it live. Take a tour behind and watch the jockeys mount their... More

This is simply an awesome place to go spend a couple hours at. I go watch the horses race a few days a week and it's a ton of fun. They have many different vendors there selling food and have horse races every 30 minutes or so. They also have a card club that is open 24/7. They offer many... More
