Known as the “Kentucky of Canada” in many circles, visitors from around the world visit PEI to experience the thunder & thrill of harness racing.

Harness racing is a major part of our island heritage and to better experience it, we recommend visiting in August during Old Home Week.  Expect nightly qualifying races, onsite amusement park and even a parade to ring in this annual event.  The week finishes with the popular Gold Cup & Saucer Race.  Place your bets early and enjoy the show!

Harness events also take place throughout the Year at Redshores race tracks in both Summerside and Charlottetown.
