What’s the best way to deal with the cold weather in Phoenix? How about a free sweatshirt from Turf Paradise? It’s not as if you need a parka.
A unique Arizona tradition lives on as family friendly Turf Paradise throws the biggest Thanksgiving weekend party in Phoenix that includes free sweatshirts, live local horseracing, food and drink specials, a kids fun park, live music, and more. More than 60 years ago Turf Paradise became a local Thanksgiving weekend tradition for family fun.
You may not be able to move very fast after Thanksgiving, but our horses do. And you can watch, wager, and win on a full card of live local horseracing on the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday after Thanksgiving.

There’s no need to spend the Saturday after Thanksgiving cooped up in your home trying to install that billboard sized television you just bought. Get off the couch and get to Turf Paradise and get a free sweatshirt with a paid admission while supplies last. Grandstand admission is $3. Kids 16 and under get in free. There’s a full card of live horseracing, live music, and a kids fun park with bounce house inflatables. Plus $3 aluminum bottle beer.
Turf Paradise General Manager Vince Francia said, “A cool beer, a warm sweatshirt, and red hot horseracing. Nothing beats Thanksgiving weekend at Turf Paradise.”
Turf Paradise opened its doors in 1956 and has operated at the same location (19th Avenue and Bell) ever since making it Arizona’s first sports franchise.
