There’s usually always an activity taking place at Fonner Park, and now that activity is construction. They are in the beginning phases of expanding the Temporary Casino. The expansion is taking place at the south entrance of the concourse and will feature table games, slots, roulette, and black jack.

The current concessions area will evolve into a sports bar and sports booking area. The expansion is projected to be done before the upcoming football season.

“We hope to be ready by the end of July first part of August, probably safe to say August some time,” Chris Kotulak, CEO of Fonner Park said “But when we open this new annex area, the temporary concourse casino will have those table games that are so popular that people want; craps, black jack, roulette.”

August is the targeted completion month because it’ll set up another money making opportunity.
