Your event is customizable with a choice of food and beverage offerings, décor, music, and more.

2. Built-in entertainment

The friendly competition of Thoroughbred racing is a thrill enjoyed by all.

Although the hours of the Turf Lounge are ultimately up to the event host, Woodbine’s extensive live racing schedule is a good place to start:

THURSDAYS 4:50 p.m. – Approx. 8 p.m.

FRIDAYS, SATURDAYS, & SUNDAYS 1:10 p.m – Approx. 6 p.m.

New to horse racing? Woodbine’s guest experience pros can coach guests on the ins and outs of the sport and can assist in placing a bet on the room’s dedicated wagering terminals.

3. Professional chefs at your service

Woodbine’s culinary and hospitality team have curated delectable menu options. Choose from various meal packages that include fan-favourite offerings like pasta and carving stations.

With three restaurants on the property, Woodbine has perfected the racetrack dining experience. The Turf Lounge has its own kitchen and bar to exclusively service your event.

4. The room is yours

On the bustling second floor of the Woodbine grandstand, The Turf Lounge is a private space. This means that if your event calls for a DJ, we’re all ears!

From business presentations to photo sharing and beyond, the room has audio and video capabilities that take the space to the next level. Woodbine’s team can help bring your vision to life.

5. In the heart of the action

At the largest racetrack in Canada, new experiences are endless. The Turf Lounge is an escalator ride away from watching a race from the rail or visiting the horses in the paddock.

Guests can keep the celebration going next door at the Great Canadian Casino Resort and Hotel, attached to the Woodbine property.

Two kilometers north of Toronto Pearson International Airport, Woodbine Racetrack is conveniently located at Hwy 27 and Rexdale Blvd.
