You know Vernon Downs for its thrilling live harness racing every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, but did you know that Vernon Downs also offers live entertainment every Friday and Saturday nights on its Casino Stage at Ring Eyed Pete's Bar.

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.

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!
