The outdoor theatre and dining area are built from reclaimed and recycled materials from two hundred years of Kentucky history, and the shows are performed by talented actors both professional and local.

At other times, the track holds regular horse races, as well as fascinating guided tours, dining options, and a monthly Family Adventure Day.
