June 30, 2017 | Red Deer, AB –  In celebration of Canada 150, food fanatics indulge, thrill seekers chase adventure, entertainment lovers celebrate, and community members unite together at the 2017 Westerner Days Fair & Exposition. From July 19 to July 23, we will come together in celebration and pay tribute to this great country we call home by showcasing mainly Canadian entertainers, vendors, shows, and getting back to our Canadian roots by being proud, welcoming, practical, and service-oriented.

 Satisfy your thirst and hunger by stopping off at the Grub Hub. Before you even reach the area, you will be tempted by the smells of the Bushmen's Smokehouse, Birdies Donuts, Sierra Coffee, Queen Bees Food Truck and so much more! The Grub Hub will once again feature dozens of delicious treats and meal options. You will find ethnic delicacies, Western classics and a variety of deep fried goodies, including gluten free options.
