Summer Roundup at Prairie Meadows

summer roundup

September is all about change. Summer ends, school begins, football season kicks off, and cooler days prepare us for fall. One thing that you can be certain of, amongst the change, is that Prairie Meadows will continue to bring the fun. A holiday weekend with plenty of entertainment (and delicious food), and weekday bites for the adults to enjoy – check out what Prairie Meadows has planned for their summer roundup.



Celebrate the long holiday weekend out at Prairie Meadows! Bring the whole family out to enjoy the thrill of live horse racing Friday – Monday. You can watch & wager, while keeping the family well fed with their many trackside treats. Encourage your crew to participate in their NEW trackside entertainment, where participants will walk away with FREE prizes!

If you’re looking to experience the races from the best seats in the house, head up to Champions on Level 4. They offer tiered seating, great food options, and a full-service bar.


Live racing will continue on Sunday, with post time beginning at 4pm. In addition to their delicious trackside eats, Prairie Meadows will be hosting B&K BBQ Food Truck! They’ll be serving delicious homemade comfort food like pulled pork nachos, chopped brisket sandwiches, chicken & mac, and more!


And, of course, there’s no better way to finish off the holiday weekend than with a chance to take home cash prizes! Join them on Labor Day for their Labor Day Swipe & Win promotion. Participate with your Prairie Gold Rewards card to win up to $1,000!
