Westerner Days Fair & Exposition for 2017 may be over, but the impact on our community is lasting.  Seventeen official off-site events were held this year with over ,000 raised, benefiting local not-for-profits and many events also collected Food Bank donations.

From pancake breakfasts to barbeques and chili cook-offs, food was a common theme during our community gatherings.  A total of ten pancake breakfasts were held that raised a combined total of ,800 and five barbeques raised ,290.  BIG 105 and 106.7 The Drive Chili Cook-Off event, benefitting the Kidney Foundation, brought in ,729.90.

Westerner Days’ Morning of Faith, presented by 90.5 Shine FM, on Sunday, July 23, had over 2,600 people in attendance.  The non- denominational service was free to attend, and guests were encouraged to bring a donation for the Red Deer Food Bank.  A staggering 530 lbs of food was collected and 2.55 in monetary donations.

Westerner Park would like to thank everyone who planned or participated in a Westerner Days off-site event. Our community united together in celebration and support, which is what being a Westerner is all about!
