Each and every weekend, Vernon Downs showcases some of the best acts in Central New York and beyond. You can enjoy some of the finest spirits and beers while listening to bands playing everything from soul and funk to oldies to country and rock. And, all the entertainment is free, so stop by and enjoy the show on us!
Vernon Downs is pleased to welcome Joey Dee and the Starliters on August 14. You remember Joey Dee as the chart-topping group from the 50's and 60's with such hits as "Peppermint Twist" and "Shout!" The group is sure to bring the crowd to its feet at 9 p.m. Aug. 14.
Ring Eyed Pete's Bar will also host Joe Angerosa and his act "Memories of Elvis," which has toured everywhere from Atlantic City to Las Vegas to Canada. Angerosa will be entertaining the crowd with all the King's hits at 9 p.m. on August 21.
These two free acts are in addition to our regular entertainment line up every Friday and Saturday night. During August Vernon Downs Casino welcomes back some of the crowd favorites including Soul Injection August 1, Soul Mine August 15 and the Billionaires on August 29.
Vernon Downs Casino will also feature a monthly country act at the request of our customers. This month, Lonesome Crow will be returning to Ring Eyed Pete's Stage on August 7.
Ring Eyed Pete's offers an exciting atmosphere just off of the casino gaming floor. And, the acts usually go until 1 a.m., giving you plenty of time to stop over after the races!
