It is with heavy hearts that we announce that we've made the difficult yet important decision to postpone this year’s Canadian Finals Rodeo until 2021. In partnership with Canadian Professional Rodeo Association, Westerner Park, and the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce the decision was made due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 related health guidelines and the cancellation of many qualifying rodeos this summer. We feel the standard of excellence and quality of experience that our fans and competitors expect from us would not be achievable this year.
The Canadian Finals Rodeo is a world-class rodeo event that brings together the very best rodeo athletes and fans from around the world. Over a six-day period, you can catch high energy performances from Canada’s top athletes in events like Bareback, Bull Riding, Steer Wrestling, Ladies Barrel Racing, and more. With 120 competitors and seven performances, including the Rising Stars Junior Canadian Finals Rodeo, we invite you to join us in celebration of all things western!
For more information, please visit the official CFR website.
There are over 55 free on-site activities to take part in during CFR! You don’t need a ticket to the performances to take part in the celebration; guests can look forward to free events like at CFR46 when we held the the first ever Canadian Finals Breakaway competition and Miss Rising Stars Rodeo Queen competition. Keep watch for daily Pancake Breakfasts brought to you by our local community in support of local charities and organizations as well as nightly Buckle Presentations, Athlete Hot Stove Presentations, Autograph Signings, Fashion Shows, Cabaret Parties and so much more!
Stay tuned for a full list of 2020 on-site activities at CFR 47.
The official Trade Show of the Canadian Finals Rodeo brings together the very best in western fashion with products and demonstrations from some of Canada’s top vendors.

Guests will be able to enjoy our pop-up café, presentation stages and live entertainment. Visit the CFR Tradeshow, open daily, to find your official #CFR47 merchandise, and shop all things Western!

Parking fees will no longer be charged for events happening at Westerner Park. Instead, a small facility fee on each ticket will be implemented. The new fee structure will lower the overall cost to guests while helping keep Westerner Park financially sustainable. Click here for more details.
