Keep up to date on what's happening at Westerner Park and be the first to learn about Westerner Days 2014!

2014 was incredible!


Westerner Days Fair & Exposition 2014 was another great year! We had over 92,000 visitors who made Westerner Days their own. From our outstanding ATB Financial Main Stage lineup consisting of, CCMA Award winners Brett Kissel and Tim Hicks, as well as Diamond Rio, Harlequin, Honeymoon Suite and The Sheepdogs, to our awesome midway rides, the always entertaining Red Deer Motors North American Pony Chuckwagon Championships, The Holiday Inn 19th Street Market, Adventure Alley and our Saputo Kids Corral – there were truthfully hundreds of ways to experience “My Westerner Days.”

Not to mention the over 20 ways to enjoy Westerner Days at the many off-site events consisting of BBQ’s, Pancake Breakfasts, Chili Cook-Offs, Car Washes, foot races and even hot yoga! Oh – and of course the endless amount of goodies and treats from Grub Hub. Hopped up on the leftover mini donuts, our staff and volunteers are busy planning next year’s edition of central Alberta’s largest summer celebration. Be sure to mark your calendars now and we’ll see you there!

Volunteer


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. For more information, please visit www.rmhcentralalberta.org.

Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada

The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to providing leadership in finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis and enabling people affected by MS to enhance their quality of life.

The MS Society of Canada, Central Alberta Chapter provides a wide range of services to people affected by MS living in Red Deer and surrounding area — such as Olds, Stettler, Rocky Mountain House, Sylvan Lake, Sundre, Eckville, Wetaskiwin, Drayton Valley, Lacombe, Ponoka, Innisfail, and other outlying communities. These services include: support, information, loan library, advocacy, social events, educational workshops, bi-monthly newsletters, and special assistance for clients. For more information, please visit www.mssociety.ca/centralalberta

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 Tina at tina.trowsse@cawes.com or 403.318.2321 to make a difference today.
