However you decided to enjoy Westerner Days, we know you created memories you will remember for years to come.

Our staff and volunteers are busy planning next year’s 125th anniversary celebration of Westerner Days, Central Alberta’s largest summer celebration! See you then!

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.

Canadian Cancer Society

The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers, whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer. The Canadian Cancer Society achieves its mission through research, education, patient services and advocacy for healthy public policy. These efforts are supported by volunteers and staff and funds raised in communities across Canada.

Boys and Girls Club of Red Deer and District

The Boys and Girls Clubs of Red Deer and District has been helping young people to discover, develop and achieve their best potential as they grow to become future adults, citizens and leaders, by engaging them in activities that challenge and help them develop healthy minds and bodies. Boys and Girls Clubs provide after-school/evening programs and services for children/youth between the ages of 7 – 17, and their families.

Clubs run in Bowden, Delburne, Elnora, Penhold, Springbrook and throughout Red Deer. All programs and services are accessible by all, regardless of social or financial barriers.

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.

Thank you to the continued support of our many sponsors who help to make Westerner Days Fair & Exposition possible. Knowing that 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.
