Honouring our Past – Celebrating our Future

Join us in celebrating and honouring our military at the the newly launched ‘Veterans’ Classic’. The first annual event at The Raceway will take place on Friday October 20th, 2017 alongside the Friday night harness racing card. 

To kick off the celebration the 1st Hussars Cavalry Troop will perform. The Veterans’ Classic will also showcase military vehicles throughout the West Annex, Grandstand and The Raceway lobby for guests to see as well as veteran tributes between each race of the night.

Ross Seip, Past Royal Canadian Legion A6 Zone Commander and event Chair comments: “This new event at The Raceway at Western Fair District is one our Veterans and the public will not want to miss a great opportunity to mingle with our Veterans both young and old, honour their past heroics and celebrate our future.”

The event will support the Poppy Fund, Parkwood Veterans and the Military Family Resource Centre through fundraising efforts.
