The Alberta Professional Chuckwagon & Chariot Association (APCCA) will be back for the Westerner Days Fair & Exposition as the sanctioning organization for the North American Pony Chuckwagon Championships for 2020.

The APCCA is no stranger to the sport of chuckwagon and chariot racing as the organization has been entertaining crowds since 1968. There will be many familiar faces and there will be some new faces, but all drivers share one thing in common – they are passionate about promoting this family oriented sport. We look forward to some exciting battles to the finish line during their 51st season of “Racing across the prairies." Information on the organization can be found at Alberta Professional Chuckwagon & Chariot Association.

Sponsors will have the opportunity to bid on 40 chuckwagon tarps available for purchase to display their business name and logo for five days of exciting wagon racing and we will also be featuring 6 heats of chariot racing and there will be 24 chariot sponsorships available for purchase. The chariots will run prior to the wagons on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only. All successful bidders at the Tarp Auction will qualify for the door prize draws which include a pressure washer donated by Pumps and Pressure Inc and a “ticket package of 2 tickets each for the Wednesday and Thursday performances during CFR 47 donated by CFR Red Deer.

The North American Pony Chuckwagon Championships, scheduled for July 15 – 19, 2020, are an integral component of the Westerner Days Fair & Exposition which attracts close to 100,000 visitors to our community from across Western Canada and 43% of these visitors are from outside the Red Deer area.

We invite you to consider the benefits associated with joining our Westerner Park community as one of the 40 tarp sponsors or one of the 24 chariot sponsors. It’s a creative way to maximize your organization’s visibility and ensure your message is getting to the right people. We are confident that businesses, like yours, will recognize the value of participating as a sponsor to ensure you are top of mind with local patrons and visitors to our city.

In an effort to alleviate time constraints with the registration process, we are asking all tarp sponsors to preregister which will allow us to have bid packages ready for pick up at the Tarp Auction and eliminate the time consuming process of having to provide contact information at the registration desk. Please go to Westerner Park for online bidder registration, driver lists and 2020 placing information and sponsorship benefit details.

Payment Information
Payment in full is required on April 9, 2020. Visa, MasterCard, Debit or Company Cheque will be accepted.

All Bidders registered prior to April 3, 2020 will be entered into a draw for two (2) weekly admit pins and one (1) weekly parking pass for Westerner Days Fair & Exposition. Also any previous tarp sponsor who brings a new sponsor to the Tarp Auction, and if both sponsors successfully purchase tarps, the previous tarp sponsor will be provided with the opportunity to display a 4 x 8 banner in the chuckwagon bowl for the duration of the races. Banner must be provided to Westerner Park by July 10, 2020.
