Honouring our Past – Celebrating our Future

Join us in celebrating and honouring our military at the the second annual Veterans’ Classic. 

The ‘Veterans’ Classic’ is a special night of horse racing and celebration at the Western Fair District to honouring our military.  The 2018 festivities will mark the annual event’s second year at The Raceway, taking place Friday, October 19th 2018, as part of the Friday night harness racing card.

Opening Ceremonies will begin at 5PM on the track with a Colour Guard and the 1st Hussars Cavalry Troop performing a Skills at Arms demonstration. The Veterans’ Classic also showcases military displays and vehicles throughout the East Annex, Grandstand and The Raceway lobby, as well as veteran tributes between each race of the evening. The evening includes a tasty, barbecue dinner on the patio adjacent to the racetrack, and named races throughout. Patrons are encouraged to support the Parkwood Veterans draw table in the Raceway Lobby, with beautiful, hand-crafted items they’ve created themselves.

The event will support the Poppy Fund, Parkwood Veterans and the 1st Hussars Cavalry Troop through fundraising efforts.
