The Gold Cup event covers a large area on the Detroit River so there are many different viewing areas and ticket plans, from a casual picnic to exciting viewing at the water's edge.
Our most popular tickets are in the Waterworks Park Grandstand area, an excellent place to watch the races from. There are two sections: General Admission (area #5) and Commodore's Club (reserved seating in area #4).
For casual viewing consider the General Admission parks (areas #7). Henderson Park and Memorial Park have space available for barbequing and picnicing.
Viewing from areas #3, #4, #5 and #7 is FREE on Friday!
