Christmas Starts Here
Start your festive season celebrations at Kia Friday Night Racing at Canterbury Park.
Due to inclement weather, all kids and Christmas entertainment has been cancelled, and limited food stalls will be present. However you can still enjoy top quality racing, plus food and drink from permanent cafes and bars.
Please note, due to COVID Safe restrictions, capacity is restricted. We recommend purchasing an advanced ticket to ensure entry. Advanced adult tickets cost $10 but guarantees entry, offers fast-track arrival and includes a $10 drink voucher to redeem at the venue. Free children tickets can also be booked in advance. Kia Friday Night general admission tickets are still available on a walk-up basis on the night subject to availability.
Returning this year is The Canterbury Social – an exclusive trackside beer garden, the ideal place to unwind with your friends and take in everything Friday Night racing has to offer.
