COME TO THE PARTY - STAY FOR THE RACING & MUCH MUCH MORE!!!
When you come to Hastings Racecourse the home of racing in Hawke’s Bay, you experience more than just racing.
From the competitive racing enthusiasts, to families looking for a great day out, we have a thrilling experience to offer everyone.
As well as our finish line grandstand, the club has picnic tables and umbrellas which are available for everyone to use.
You can make the races a super day out with our BYO food and refreshments policy. Don’t leave the kids behind either! There is plenty to keep the younger ones amused with the excitement of the races and hours of fun to be had on our adventure playground.
On bigger race days we have a great array of children’s entertainment including bouncy castles and face painters; definitely enough to keep them amused all day.
Suites are available accommodating groups of any size they provide a great base for an enjoyable group outing. Food and refreshments are provided for you in your own suite which offers viewing directly down on to the racetrack.
Have you thought about having your birthday / wedding anniversary / any other celebration on course during a race day? You should! It’s a great fun party atmosphere with the added entertainment of racing and we can organise all especially for you.
