Thank you Central Alberta for making our largest summer celebration one to remember with over 93,000 people that buckled up to go check out 2018 Westerner Days Fair & Exhibition!

The 2018 Westerner Days Fair & Exposition saw a total of 93,543 guests enjoy the food, activities, shopping and entertainment! Each night saw thousands of fans meet-up to watch twelve fantastic TD Main Stage performers, enjoyed four nights of fireworks, and experienced the thrilling Red Deer Motors Pony Chuckwagon Championships. Red Deer stayed mostly sunny for our visitors during the week, and on Saturday, July 21 we welcomed more than 20,000 people into Westerner Park.

Westerner Days Fair & Exposition would like to give our sincere thanks to all sponsors, media, volunteers and staff who have helped us make this year’s event a success. This year, we had over 20 off-site events all over Red Deer, which saw thousands of people enjoying pancake breakfasts and charity BBQs.

We are excited for what next year has in store as our staff and volunteers plan for Central Alberta’s largest summer celebration! See you in 2019 from July 17-21 at Westerner Days Fair & Exposition!

Westerner Days Fair & Exposition is made possible through the efforts of many dedicated volunteers

In addition to our committees and event volunteers, we had several local charities that were on-site volunteering at the Saputo Kids Corral.

Central Alberta Refugee Effort

At C.A.R.E. we support the efforts of immigrants and refugees to overcome barriers and participate fully in Canadian life as valued members of the Central Alberta community by providing coordinated services and by encouraging a welcoming environment.

More than just a place to rest, the House offers an environment of support through friendly and helpful staff, volunteers and, most importantly, from other families who are going through similar circumstances and can truly understand the challenge of dealing with a child's illness.

Hockey Alberta Foundation

The Hockey Alberta Foundation is a not-for-profit organization formed in 2001 and registered as Charitable Foundation with the Canada Revenue Agency in 2004. The Hockey Alberta Foundation’s Every Kid Every Community program was launched in 2011, with the goal of ensuring a gateway to play hockey for any child in Alberta who is interested in the sport. The goal is to provide every child in Alberta the opportunity to play hockey, have fun and, in many cases, experience the sport for the first time. Funding through Every Kid Every Community is available to assist amateur sports organizations, minor hockey organizations, youth groups, recreation groups, or any community group with an idea, project or program that helps establish an event or program to get local children active in hockey. Hockey is a great way for kids to be active, healthy and surrounded by positive leaders in their community. Keeping kids active in sport helps reduce childhood obesity, creates a safe and fun environment and forms friendships.
