Horse Racing in Hagerstown

Between 1929 and 1970, Hagerstown featured horse racing at the present-day Fairgrounds Park.

The open-air facility could seat 4,800 people, as well as 900 additional people in the clubhouse and dining room. The grandstand is still present at Fairgrounds Park today, but instead of the thunder of horse hooves, the grandstand is witness to kids and young adults playing ball and soccer. The park also hosts outdoor yardsale events, as well as annual 4th of July fireworks celebrations.
