Tauranga Racecourse is considered one of the finest provincial racing venues in New Zealand. It hosts approximately 12 thoroughbred racemeetings and one harness meeting each season, including some of the largest racemeetings in the Waikato/Bay of Plenty region.
Racing Tauranga’s premier events include the Japan New Zealand International Raceday in March and the Kiwifruit Cup Day in June. Other major events include the Interislander Summer Festival Tauranga Races on the 2nd of January each year and the hugely popular Christmas at the Races, where hospitality packages are booked out months in advance.
