Emerald Downs Racetrack and Casino offers hoof-pounding excitement, delicious food, entertainment and family-friendly activities. Live-racing season runs April through September. Themed family fun days throughout the season feature loads of activities including pony rides, rock walls and bouncy toys. Whether you’re betting on the ponies, having some family fun or taking in some music, bring your appetite. Emerald Downs offers a variety of food options, from traditional park concessions to fine dining in the fifth-floor Rainier Restaurant. And just because the horses and jockeys take some time off between seasons doesn’t mean the fun stops. Simulcast racing, live music, dancing, an annual holiday gift festival and other special events are on tap during the off-season.
