Tioga Downs is located in the southern part of the Finger Lakes region. Since 2006, the facility has added nearly 750 Video Lottery Terminals (VLTs), two bars, a buffet, banquet room, coffee shop and a schedule packed with events. The stage hosts musical guests and other performers and has attracted stars such as Joan Jett and Chubby Checker. During the summer, weddings, conferences and other gatherings can congregate under the trackside tent. Horse races typically run on weekends from May until September.
