Grand River Raceway

Grand River Raceway owned and operated by the Grand River Agricultural Society, is located in the picturesque village of Elora famous for the stunning Elora Gorge and the only 5 storey mill left in Ontario which now houses a prestigious Inn and restaurant.

Elora Village has a racetrack with a simulcast lounge and a gambling facility operated by OLG with 240 gaming machines.

The slots facility is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week providing a fun entertainment destination for the community and visitors to the Grand River Raceway.

The slots have a betting range of between 1cent and $5 and there are several progressive jackpot games with huge jackpot wins just waiting for the lucky player.

Profits from the slots gaming center are spent on sponsorship of local events and given to the local municipal council to be spent on community projects.

Parking is free at Grand River Raceway and the slots center has a free coat check and serves complimentary tea, coffee and pop to players. A currency exchange facility and ATM is located in the venue as well as a gift shop selling lottery tickets.


Guests to the gaming centre can enjoy a delicious a la carte meal at the Getaway Restaurant which is on the river’s edge and is open Monday to Thursday from 9am to 11pm and on Friday to Sunday from 9am to 1am. The Lighthouse Restaurant is open on race nights offering light meals and finger foods.

The Lighthouse Restaurant is situated in the race paddock and has a beautiful patio which is just meters away from the passage that competing horses take to the racetrack. The spacious and stylish lighthouse restaurant with seating for 150 people is available for rent for private functions on non-race days with on site catering.

The superb tiered dining room, ‘Captain’s Quarters’ which boasts a stunning view over the racetrack offers buffet dinners on race days between 6pm and 9pm at excellent prices and with gracious service.
