Thank you Central Alberta for making 2017 Westerner Days Fair & Exposition one to remember with over 90,000 people that came together in celebration.

The community united, food lovers indulged, thrill seekers adventured and entertainment lovers celebrated together at Westerner Days 2017! Thousands of people come out to watch 10 incredible Main Stage performers, 4 nights of fireworks, experience the livestock shows, enjoy all the entertainment and eat fair food. A few of the highlights from Westerner Days was Tom Cochrane’s performance with Red Rider on Friday, July 21 in the ENMAX Centrium, which drew in over 4,600 fans. The warm temperatures and sun in Red Deer on Saturday, July 22 had more than 22,000 people in attendance, numbers were up 15% from last year’s Saturday’s attendance. Audiences packed the stands to watch the Pony Steeplechase Championship Series and stayed to see the pony chuckwagon races.

We are excited for what next year has in store, as our staff and volunteers are busy planning Central Alberta’s largest summer celebration! See you at the 2018 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. For more information, please visit

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.

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 [email protected] or 587-876-3409 to make a difference today.

Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society

The Red Deer International Folk Festival Society was formed in 1969. This Society organized the first Folk Festival Celebration in Western Canada, now known as Canada Day. This celebrations has since become a Red Deer and area tradition. In 1996, the Red Deer International Folk Festival Society changed its name to the Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society to better represent its member groups which include many of Red Deer's ethno-cultural Societies.
