Our YMCA Poker Classic at Canterbury Park was a great event.  The staff was easy to work with, the food was terrific, and they put on a first class casino experience.  Having professional dealers who are personable takes the event to a different level .

Canterbury Park is a great place to host a consumer show. The addition of the Expo Center has only enhanced this location. The Canterbury team is great to work with, and our guests love the ample free parking.

We’ve hosted numerous client and staff appreciation events at Canterbury, and it’s always been a huge hit.  The atmosphere is unlike any other venue, and makes for a very relaxed, fun night out.

We’ve hosted our annual client appreciation party at Canterbury Park for as long as I can remember. It’s by far the most widely attended and talked about event we put on and provides a great setting for building relationships.

We transformed Canterbury Park’s track infield into a 16-court volleyball event, and followed that up with a night at the races. How fun!   The venue was terrific and the staff was easy to work with. We’ll definitely be back.

The Triple Crown Club proved to be the perfect venue for our trade show and client party. Everyone had so much fun, we booked a follow up night out in Silks. What a great place to have an event!
