Westerner Days

About Westerner Days

Westerner Days Fair & Exposition is Central Alberta's largest summer celebration with five days of top quality, truly authentic, action-packed entertainment! This event has everything that people are looking for in summer festivities – live entertainment, midway rides, free entertainment, nightly Pony Chuckwagon Races, good food and great company!

Each year Westerner Days has a major impact on the economy of Red Deer and surrounding area, with the overall effect conservatively estimated to be in excess of $7 million dollars. Of that total, approximately $5 million is spent by visitors, exhibitors and contractors in Red Deer and area. These expenditures are typically made on accommodations, food services, retail, entertainment and more. Local businesses recognize that Westerner Days Fair & Exposition is a major economic driver in our economy and for that reason support the event and participate by sponsoring the many activities that make the event special and fun!

Westerner Days Off-Site Event Registration

Westerner Days Fair & Exposition invites your business or organization to host an off-site event!

Hosting an off-site event offers businesses the opportunity to unite the community together in partnership with Central Alberta’s largest summer celebration – Westerner Days Fair & Exposition.

Get involved by hosting an event during July 17-21, 2019 for the community to partake in. Put your own spin on a pancake breakfast, chill cook off, dance, or other creative activities.

Want to be involved but need help with ideas? We can help! Hosts are encouraged to provide a portion of their proceeds to support a local charity or non-profit of their choice. Last year, over $23,000 was given back to our community!
