Available seats in each grandstand section and prices are shown on the site. For all shows, children under 8 are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.
Because of current provincial restrictions, fans will be required to remain in their assigned grandstand section for the evening, with the exception of going to concession stands or restrooms. Face mask use and social distancing protocol will be mandated any time you are not in your assigned seat. Track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse says officials are expecting to release even more shows in the weeks to come.
“We’ll be racing every weekend until Labour Day but the exact schedule line-up needs to be confirmed,” said Josiasse. “As of Friday, July 16th we will be operating under the 3rd and final stage of the provincial reopening strategy. Even with that in mind, we still encourage everyone to take advantage of the available vaccination clinics and opportunities across the region.”
