In celebration of Canada 150, food fanatics indulge, thrill seekers chase adventure, entertainment lovers celebrate, and community members unite together at the 2017 Westerner Days Fair & Exposition. From July 19 to July 23, we will come together in celebration and pay tribute to this great country we call home by showcasing mainly Canadian entertainers, vendors, shows, and getting back to our Canadian roots by being proud, welcoming, practical, and service-oriented.

Satisfy your thirst and hunger by stopping off at the Grub Hub. Before you even reach the area, you will be tempted by the smells of the Bushmen’s Smokehouse, Birdies Donuts, Sierra Coffee, Queen Bees Food Truck and so much more! The Grub Hub will once again feature dozens of delicious treats and meal options. You will find ethnic delicacies, Western classics and a variety of deep fried goodies, including gluten free options. For more information on food vendors and gluten free options, visit WesternerDays.ca.

Take a stroll through the Holiday Inn 19th Street Market, where you will find over 100 exhibitors demonstrating, showcasing and providing samples of their products. This venue is home to My Antique Portrait, Lockdown Escape Rooms, Spudniks, Central Alberta Garment District (Clothing), Thelma’s Goodies, and more. Be on the lookout for other incredible treats, fashion and products that make the Holiday Inn 19th Street Market a Westerner Days favourite!

Right beside the market, take in the sounds and relax in our Mike’s Hard Lounge, presented by 100.7 CRUZ FM and KRAZE 101.3 FM. There will be nightly shows by Aussie Rules Dueling Pianos and special appearances by Jason Bertsch and Alicia Aichelle that are sure to impress the audience!

Visit the Bud Barn and Beer Gardens, presented by ZED 98.9 FM, and take in four nights of live entertainment with performances by Dean Ray, Drew Gregory and Alecia Aichelle on the Chillabong’s Stage.

As part of our year-round partnership, Shaw will be providing all attendees of Westerner Days with access to Shaw Go WiFi. With free WiFi access in areas, all attendees will be able to share their Westerner Days experience with family, friends, and the community!

Support Smiles Thru Lindsey when you order out this month

Published on

Article submitted by Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools

Throughout the month of May, purchase a “Big Smile” burger from Cilantro and Chive and $2 will be donated to the Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation as part of École Secondaire Notre Dame High School’s grad service project. This year’s goal is to raise $40,000.

Lily Forsyth and Allyne Simonot, Grade 12 students at École Secondaire Notre Dame High School, worked in collaboration with the chef at Cilantro and Chive to design the “Big Smile” burger. The burger was designed featuring some of Lindsey’s favourite ingredients and is a great way to raise money for an amazing cause. The “Big Smile” features marinated chicken breast, bacon, a sunny fried egg, arugula, tomato, balsamic glaze and a lime avocado aioli on a brioche bun and is served with hand-cut fries.

“The Class of 2021 agreed that in light of COVID-19 mental health should be a priority now more than ever. Lindsey More was, like us, a Notre Dame graduate. After she tragically took her life in 2015, her family began Smiles Thru Lindsey. She was a regular happy girl, nothing seemingly wrong. She was involved in the school community through sports and the grad service project of 2011. We knew that our school community would connect to her and her story as easily as it has,” said Allyne Simonot, student at École Secondaire Notre Dame High School.

“This cause is actually very personal for me, it is another way for me to support my friends who are struggling, a way to communicate to every person who is willing to listen that they are not alone. That everyone is feeling or has felt a toll on their mental health and that there are resources and people out there to help,” said Lily Forsyth, student at École Secondaire Notre Dame High School.

“In a year of such uncertainty, I am so proud of how our students have found such unique ways to fundraise and create awareness for mental health. Through their dedication and creativity, they have been able to partner with some amazing local businesses allowing the entire community the opportunity to be part of our quest to end the stigma surrounding mental health,” said Principal, Rose McQuay at École Secondaire Notre Dame High School.

“We get to meet the wonderful people who work tirelessly behind the scenes in deserving organizations while enjoying delicious burgers created and inspired by amazing people in our community. In just over four years we have been able to give back over $80,000 to local charities and organizations in our own backyard. Thank you to École Secondaire Notre Dame High School for being a part of our Burger of the Month and having some fun with us, while raising awareness for Smiles Thru Lindsey,” said Rieley Kay, owner of Cilantro and Chive restaurant.

Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools serves over 10,360 students in 20 schools in Red Deer, Blackfalds, Sylvan Lake, Rocky Mountain House, Innisfail, and Olds, as well as an at-home learning program. It also supports the learning of over 1095 students in a Traditional Home Education Program. The Division is committed to serving children and parents with a complete offering of learning opportunities delivered within the context of Catholic teachings and within the means of the Division.
