Creating an Experience for All

Located in Elora, Ontario, just on the edge of the village, The GrandWay Event Centre is home to several versatile spaces that can accommodate a wide range of events. The 53 acre grounds are also home to the Grand River Raceway.

No matter what you’re planning, our Events & Experiences Team will work with you every step of the way to bring your event to life. We offer numerous indoor and outdoor venues, in-house catering, and unique amenities like live horse racing and an on-site casino.

The GrandWay is owned and operated by the Grand River Agricultural Society (GRAS), a not-for-profit corporation, incorporated under the Agricultural and Horticultural Societies Act of Ontario.

Turn a good time into a ‘Grand’ time.

We live and breathe entertainment. It’s who we are and creating memories is what we do. With endless events and amenities, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you’re spending a summer night at the Raceway, trying your luck at the on-site casino, or attending one of our many events – no matter what your idea of a good time is, you’ll find it at The GrandWay.


First awarded in 2019 as a Great Place to Work, and then later recognized on the 2020 list of Best Workplaces™ in Retail and Hospitality,  the organization is thrilled that they continued to receive incredibly positive feedback about employment at GRAS and Grand River Raceway.
