The thrill of live harness racing is deeply rooted in Prince Edward Island’s culture, and this is one of the leading entertainment establishments in Atlantic Canada. Every year, visitors from around the world travel to the trade-mark red soil of the Island for the opportunity to be a part of the action and entertainment. This summer, Red Shores will be the host location for the World Driving Championship which will coincide with the World Trotting Conference. Delegates and drivers from around the world will come to compete, as well as soak up the P.E.I. tradition.

Red Shores Summerside is believed to be the oldest race track in Canada. Don’t miss harness racing’s biggest week in Summerside with The Governor’s Plate and Lobster Festival in July. The race track operates the slot and video lottery machines, table games, a dining outlet and 30 race dates.

Insider’s Tip:
The Gold Cup and Saucer is one of the most prestigious harness racing events in North America, attracting thousands of visitors to the venue. The fastest horses and the best drivers in all of eastern Canada and northeastern United States will participate in 15 racing programs over a 10-day stretch. A must-see is the Gold Cup and Saucer parade in downtown Charlottetown – bring an umbrella because it goes ahead rain or shine.
