The Genesee Valley Hunt Races is a great way for the entire family to spend the day in a beautiful outdoor setting just north of Geneseo, NY.

The Genesee Valley Hunt Races are like no other event in our area. What began over 125 years ago as a grand day of picnicking with friends and neighbors has evolved into a multi-faceted day of fun for young and old alike. It’s a day that combines tradition, community and family all in a beautiful outdoor setting on conserved farmland in the Genesee Valley. Tailgating remains a huge part of the day and it’s still the only event in the state where spectators can watch sanctioned steeplechase races over timber jumps!

There’s lots for the kids to do (including stick horse races and pony rides), food and drink vendors, wine and craft beer tasting, shopping, music and more. It’s like an old-fashioned country fair with a race track instead of a midway, and there’s something for everyone to enjoy!

Discover Unlimited Fun

Farmers Market

Check out the New York Food and Wine Farmers’ Market. Enjoy samples of local cheeses, wines, craft beer, spirits, and more (and purchase some to take home while you’re at it)!

Seven years ago we launched a NY food and wine vendor area at the Genesee Valley Hunt Races after obtaining a Farmer’s Market Permit from NYS Dept. of Ag and Markets. It has been a huge success for vendors – and certainly appreciated by the crowds and tailgaters at this century-old, family oriented event! Our Farmers Market goes hand-in-hand with our Agri-Center, which features a petting zoo and interactive agricultural education activities. This area is always bustling with activity all day!

A Look Inside the day.

But the Hunt Races isn’t just about horses—it’s about dogs and canine events, too. There are Terrier and wiener dog races, a jumping contest, agility courses, sled dog demos, and of course the Parade of the Genesee Valley Hunt foxhounds. Leashed dogs are more than welcome to attend the event, and some people say that dog-watching is just as much fun as watching the horses!
