Westerner Days Fair & Exposition is orchestrated through the efforts of many dedicated volunteers working in conjunction with staff throughout the year. Westerner Park staff and volunteers are the backbone of our organization and they bring this event a deep sense of pride and spirit of accomplishment every year.

In addition to our committee and event volunteers, we also have several local charities volunteering on-site to organize the Saputo Kids Corral, including:

Ronald Mcdonald House

Ronald McDonald House® Central Alberta provides a home away from home for out-of-town families with sick children receiving medical attention in a Red Deer facility. 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.

Last year, 340 families stayed at Ronald McDonald House® Central Alberta. Any family with a child receiving medical care in the hospital is able to make use of the amenities at the House during the day, regardless of where they live. 478 day-users used the House last year.

The Central Alberta Women's Shelter

The Central Alberta Women’s Emergency Shelter volunteers are committed to supporting us in our vision of a community free from family violence. The sense of having done a good thing and contributing to such a worthwhile “CAWES” is what volunteering is all about. Volunteer work builds on our sense of community and gives us valuable experience.

We welcome everyone to be a part of the movement in ending the cycle of family abuse. Please contact Alyssa von Albedyhll at or 587-876-3409 to make a difference today.

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.


Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization working towards a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live. The organization mobilizes volunteers and partners to build simple, decent housing in order to provide low income, working families with access to affordable homeownership. Habitat for Humanity Red Deer Region Society (HFHRD) strives to raise awareness of the need for affordable housing and promote homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty. The organization builds homes in the Red Deer and surrounding areas and offers them to select low-income working families through a no-down-payment, interest-free mortgage program. HFHRD provides a hand up, not a hand out and strives to restore hope to families in need.


In 2015 Shalom served 743 families (over 900 unique individuals) with counselling alone. More received help through our Group Therapy and Family Life and Wellness Education programs. We serve anyone regardless of their background, gender, religious affiliation, or culture. Fees are based on a subsidized scale, making counselling affordable and accessible for everyone. Services are provided out of our Red Deer as well as our satellite office located in Olds. For more information visit

Thank you for the continued support from our many sponsors who help make Westerner Days Fair & Exposition possible. Knowing that 125th Anniversary Westerner Days Fair & Exposition will drive over $5 million in spending by non-locals, local businesses recognize the importance of being part of this great event. For that reason, we have great participation by businesses in sponsoring and operating the event.

As sponsorships are undertaken to fulfill a marketing or business objective, it is our desire at Westerner Park to create a sponsorship program and/or partnership that does just that. We have numerous sponsorship opportunities available and would be glad to discuss them with you.

Joining the Westerner Park community as a sponsor is a great way to maximize your organization's visibility and ensure your message is getting to the right people.
