Race Viewing Tickets

Hospitality Pavilion

  • Wednesday $170
  • Thursday $250
  • Wednesday & Thursday $350

There’s nothing more enjoyable than Little Brown Jug week in Delaware, Ohio, especially if your view of the Jugette and Jug is from the Hospitality Pavilion…a first class facility catering to first class tastes! The action, thrills and excitement of harness racing can be seen on the first turn of Hospitality Hill. Everything is first-class in this catered event with great food, drink and of course – betting machines at your disposal. This year the popular Pavilion will be better and bigger than ever, as space has been added for more comfort and a full, complimentary bar will be available for both days of racing. Great food is available from mid-morning through the final heat of racing both afternoons. Start your day with a full hot breakfast featuring an omelet station, waffle bar, scrambled eggs and more, and watch the horses in their early morning warm-ups. In all of harness racing, there is no better panoramic view of the racing than from the Pavilion. You are only yards from all of the action in the first turn. See the drivers jockeying their colts and fillies into position for the charge down the backstretch. Many a race has been won and lost in this first turn…and you are there and up close from your table seat or outside bleacher location. Single day tickets for the Jugette are priced at $170 and tickets for the Jug cost $250 each. You may purchase tickets for both afternoons of Grand Circuit racing for only $350, a savings of $70.
