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 the 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!
