The third leg of the Triple Crown—by far the area's biggest horse-racing event—takes place in Elmont (yes, that's Elmont, just east of Queens—not Belmont, the Bronx neighborhood). The festival lasts three days, culminating with the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 8—for which it costs only $15 to sit in the grandstand. Attendees can also enjoy live music, food trucks, craft beer and more. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Thursday, January 24.
