Late Father's day celebration

Great time and all had fun. Table on the glass and at the finish line was so worth it. Server did not show up but we managed on our own.

We had a good at the track. Lots of things to eat drink, and to see, and great seating. We didn't win big but we didn't loose alot either.

My daughter and I attended Corgies and Cupcakes. It was very very crowded and hard to move around. There is only one elevator location and it had a line to use it. I would like to revisit during a non-event time to re-evaluate but not ever going back during special events!

We have been coming to Canterbury Park for a number of years and love the Friday Night Happy hour. It is good, cheap entertainment. We will keep coming back.

We to watch the Corgi racing on their "Corgi racing and Cupcake festival" day. A friend of ours was racing his corgi. It was a lot of fun! The horse racing was fun, tho I can't pick a winner 😐 to save my life! Since it was a special event, it was packed. We sat out in the general admission... More

It was a trip and we saw an ad for Canterbury. It was the weekend after the 4th and we decided to take the kids because it was family day. I had not been to a horse race in years and it would be the kids' first time. We had a good time watching the horses, trying to pick out... More

This is such a clean, well kept facility. A good time for the whole family can be had even without betting on any horses. The usual fare of food is available. You can just wear your regular clothing as you won't get dirty. I was surprised at how large it was both inside and out. You could sit in bleachers... More

We came to go to the horse racing. My wife had been here before but I had not. We had a fun time as we did do a little betting as well. It is typical horse racing. I personally would not bring kids here unless it is a special event as it is usually 1-2 minutes of racing and then... More

I took my kids here for the 4th of July weekend and we all had the best time. They had a family fun event going on with petting zoo, pony rides and face painting. The firework spectacular show was the most amazing firework show I have ever seen in my life. I loved seeing my kids eyes light up with... More

This was our second time this year to Canterbury and it was just as fun this trip as it was last time! The weather was great, the horses beautiful and it wasn't as crowded as last time. So glad this is a family friendly place too. Kids just love watching the horses. One dad even asked his son what horse... More
