Te Rapa Racecourse, best known for thoroughbred racing in the Waikato, has earned a reputation around the region as a quality event venue. Te Rapa Racecourse Event Centre has recently undergone renovations to the existing international stand, making this the ideal spot for your next corporate function or celebration.

We specialise in wedding ceremonies set among the beautiful gardens and trees that surround the Te Rapa Racecourse, followed by the reception in one of our newly renovated lounges overlooking the racecourse. We are also a popular venue for birthday celebrations and corporate meetings and seminars.

Our Event Centre offers six unique function spaces over three levels, along with the convenience of free on-site car parking for up to 750 cars, an on-site catering team for your food and beverage requirements and we are a central location close to a range of local accommodation, the base and a 10 minute drive from the city.
