Rat Pack Tribute highlights February entertainment at the Downs

Vernon Downs Casino will feature a tribute to the Rat Pack in February. As always, admission to all of the entertainment events at Vernon Downs is free!

February 13, The Rochester Rat Pack will pay tribute to Frank, Sammy, Dean and the rest of the pack with two free shows at 5 and 9 p.m. on our casino stage.

Also, our first Friday Polka Party returns Feb. 5 with Fritz’s Polka Band.

Each and every weekend, Vernon Downs showcases some of the best acts in Central New York and beyond. You can enjoy some of the finest spirits and beers while listening to bands playing everything from soul and funk to oldies to country and rock. In addition to February’s feature act, some of our favorites will be returning this month such as the Billionaires (Feb. 6), Timeline (Feb. 12) and Soul Mine (Feb. 26).

Ring Eyed Pete’s offers an exciting atmosphere just off of the casino gaming floor. And, the acts usually go until 1 a.m.!
