We've scrubbed our building from top to bottom, cleaned and disinfected every chair, rail, carpet, table, poker chip and wagering terminal because we want to be ready when it's safe for all of us to re-open.

Due to the temporary closure, we are not conducting in-person interviews. We are happy to accept your application for future openings. If you have questions please email us at jobs@canterburypark.com

The revised race schedule is a 52-day season beginning June 10 and concluding Sept. 16, with races conducted Monday through Thursday with a 4:30 PM Post Time, pending MRC Approval. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Canterbury Park's live racing season will start with a no fan model. Please check back as things continue to evolve.

See you soon!
