Function Rooms

Te Rapa Racecourse, best known for thoroughbred racing in Hamilton, has earned a reputation around the region as a quality event venue. Te Rapa Racecourse Function Centre has recently undergone renovations to the existing international stand, making this the ideal spot for your next corporate function or celebration.

Our event centre offers six unique function spaces over three levels, along with the convenience of free on-site car parking for up to 1000 cars, an on-site catering team and centrally located close to a range of local accommodation options.
