  • It’s a fabulous idea and sure feels like a great addition to one of the best events of the summer.  The Taste of Red Deer – summer edition, is teaming up with CentreFest on Friday, July 26.

    Here’s the news straight from CentreFest and the Red Deer Regional Health Foundation (Taste of Red Deer).

    Summer Just Got More Delicious!

    CentreFest, Central Alberta’s largest street performer festival, is pleased to announce a partnership with the Red Deer Regional Health Foundation’s Taste of Red Deer.

    On Friday, July 26 from 6 to 9 pm, Taste of Red Deer will join with CentreFest to bring delicious food tastings to the already popular event.

    The partnership between the two organizations seemed a natural fit, both set on bringing young and old alike to Red Deer’s downtown core for unique entertainment, delicious food, and family fun!

    The Health Foundation’s CEO, Manon Therriault, says, “Taste of Red Deer has been a staple at Festival of Trees for years, and we decided to recreate it in the summertime. What better time to hold the event than with CentreFest, an event that’s already drawing crowds downtown. It just makes sense that two non-profit organizations would work together for the betterment of our community. We are very proud to have CentreFest as a partner.”

    Taste of Red Deer will draw between 25 and 30 local Central Alberta restaurants, each sampling some of their best menu items. Guests will purchase food vouchers to spend on whatever tantalizes their taste buds. Proceeds from the Taste of Red Deer event will go directly to purchasing equipment for the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.

    Jan Penney, CentreFest Board Chair, is also pleased with the partnership. “Our goal is to create an exciting family experience for Central Albertans, and our partners at Taste of Red Deer will add a new dimension to CentreFest that increases the excitement our event already creates.”

    A full slate of CentreFest performers will be on hand Friday night to provide unique & fun-filled entertainment while guests sample an array of food items from local vendors.

    Liz Taylor, Executive Director for Tourism Red Deer, says, “CentreFest is not only a signature event for Red Deer that helps define our unique personality, but they also consistently demonstrate a year round leadership and commitment within our arts and culture community. This partnership will enhance what CentreFest already offers to our community.”

     

    CentreFest and Taste of Red Deer is a family-friendly event and is free of charge to enter, with food tickets required for menu samplings.

  • Author, RDC alumni and former CBC Radio host Tim Tamashiro will be at Chapters Red Deer on Saturday, April 13th. He will deliver a presentation titled “After Grad: How Ikigai Will Shape Your Life”. Tim will share insights on the meaningful work of life’s purpose from his bestselling book How To Ikigai.

    Graduation is a time for celebration. But what truths do grads face after grad? Does life only consist of a series of jobs in order to make a living?

    Tim believes that there’s a difference between your “job” and your “work”. Your “job” provides you with an income, safety, security and maybe even a boost to your ego. You “work” can result in something bigger and more rewarding. Your work can result in your Ikigai or your “life’s worth”.

    Join Tim for a special presentation at Chapters Red Deer. He will be available from 11 am – 4 pm to sign books. He will deliver his presentation at 12 noon.
