Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races is pleased to announce its 2021 Charles Town Classic will feature two days of fun and excitement on Friday, Aug. 27 and Saturday, Aug. 28. Horse racing and festival fans, beer and wine enthusiasts, foodies, table gamers, slot players and anyone seeking a weekend getaway are invited to attend a brand-new entertainment experience honoring a long-time racing tradition in West Virginia at the world-class resort destination conveniently located just a one-hour drive from the Baltimore and DC beltways.

Friday’s schedule will showcase nine marquee race stakes with total purses exceeding $2 million, including the $800,000 Grade 2 Charles Town Classic which features some of the country’s top horses, jockeys and trainers, as well as the Grade 3 $400,000 Charles Town Oaks. Horse racing fans of all ages and experience levels can enjoy the races which start at 5 p.m., with the Charles Town Classic itself scheduled for approximately 10:15 p.m.

Incorporating colorful, Instagram-worthy décor, in between races on Friday the event offers a variety of promotions and giveaways as well as live entertainment from 4-11 p.m. and a disc jockey spinning all evening. To add to the excitement, guests can play lawn games out on the apron, have a laugh with Emcee Brian Thomas the Mini Entertainer and interact with talented street artists. To drive home the event’s theme there will also be trivia contests on horse racing, with free slot play up for grabs for winners.

Dining options include any of the Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races’ 7 different indoor restaurants ranging from delectable Italian eats and burgers to sweet and savory desserts at The Eatery, authentic Hong Kong cuisine at 9 Dragons, award-winning wings at the Skybox Sports Bar or entrees cooked-to-perfection at Final Cut Steakhouse.

For expedited dining, visit one of West Virginia’s favorite visiting food trucks out on the apron for delicious eats like nachos and tacos from Roaming Coyote or smoked BBQ from Hog-It-Up BBQ. Libation enthusiasts will also be excited to visit the Charles Town Classic’s beer and wine garden to enjoy a fresh pour of craft beer, wine or the event’s signature cocktail, a Charles Town-cello, shaken up by celebrity Chef Fabio Viviani, best-known for his participation in Bravo’s Top Chef seasons 5 and 8.

Live bands return Saturday starting at 4 p.m., and patrons are invited back to the casino to carry on the festivities. Those with a flair for creativity can participate in a West Virginia-themed hat contest from 4-8 p.m., with cash prizes for winners.
