Membership Spotlight | Westerner Park
Westerner Park is Central Alberta’s largest convention, trade show, agriculture, entertainment, and sports facility. Around 1.5 million visitors come through their gates every year to experience over 1,500 unique indoor and outdoor events including tradeshows, agricultural shows, hockey games, concerts, weddings, and graduations. It is home to the Red Deer Rebel hockey team, Westerner Days, the Canadian Finals Rodeo, Agri-Trade, and other world-class, family-friendly events. Generating more than $150 million each year, Westerner Park has a major impact on the economy of Red Deer and surrounding areas.
Since 1891, Westerner Park has been a place for Central Albertans to gather and celebrate community events. It is both an agricultural society and a registered non-profit organization with charitable status, so earnings are invested back into the community and facility improvements. Westerner Park’s dedicated staff and a large team of volunteers work hard to ensure this facility remains Central Alberta’s “Destination for Celebration” for generations to come.
