Everyone’s favorite races are back! The annual Canterbury Park Dog Races are an absolute staple in the event calendar. Come out to Canterbury to enjoy a variety of dog breeds race against one another alongside live racing! The winners of each race will advance to the Dog Race finals for a chance to be crowned the champion in their category during the “Bark in the Park” Dog Day finals on Labor Day (Sunday, Sept. 4th). Races will be throughout the live racing day on the main track. No outside pets allowed.

Each Sunday dog day will also feature our Pepsi Family Day events.
