News release from the Red Deer Rebels
Finally, a home game! We’re happy to welcome everyone back to the Peavey Mart Centrium tonight, as we take on the Brandon Wheat Kings at 7PM.
As per AHS and Government of Alberta restrictions, presently, no food and beverage items are permitted in the arena bowl or concourse. However, we have found a solution until the restriction is removed! During the game and intermission, fans can enter the Parkland Pavillion behind Section W, where canned beer/ciders/seltzers/soda, along with burgers, ice cream sandwiches, brisket sandwiches, and other items will be available. Seating is provided for 500 fans, via tables of 10. As per regulations, food and beverage must only be consumed while seated. The space will be open postgame as well, with alcohol sales ending at 10:00pm.
We are thankful for Westerner Park’s efforts in working with AHS to provide this opportunity. We anticipate this service being available until the restriction has been lifted.
As a reminder, this past Wednesday’s home game vs. Prince Albert has been rescheduled to Monday, January 17 at 7pm!
Other rescheduled games include… Jan. 7 vs Edmonton is now Feb. 22, and Jan. 8 vs Lethbridge will be played on Mar. 28.

News release from Red Deer Local Immigration Partnership
Red Deer Local Immigration Partnership and Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society Partners for Canada Day
The Red Deer Local Immigration Partnership (RDLIP) and Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society (RDCHS) is partnering for this year’s Canada Day event at Bower Ponds. This day is meant to celebrate ALL peoples of and in Canada and its diversity, and race relations among community members. It is also an opportunity for community members to reconnect after easing the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.
Canada Day is a multicultural event that inspires people to recognize and appreciate Canada’s cultural, ethnic, linguistic, and geographic diversity. It is hosted annually by the Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society, who are working in collaboration with the Red Deer Local Immigration Partnership this year. This event began back in 1969 (formerly known as the Red Deer Folk Festival Society) and is held at the Bower Ponds location. We expect a strong turnout, a diverse line-up of performers and all the usual amusement and festivities reflective of the multiculturalism and beauty of our country.
“Proud to be your neighbour” campaign launched by RDLIP in the beginning of the year. It is an awareness campaign which aims to highlight good neighbourly relations between people of different backgrounds and to change people’s racist attitudes and behaviours.
Events of the day include multicultural performances on the main stage all day, 11am – 11pm. You can also enjoy food from 10 different cultural food booths starting from 11am. The Canada Day Opening Ceremony will kick off at 2pm with free cake following, about 2:30pm. Celebrations will close with an epic firework show at 11pm.
During the day, there are different activities held to provide opportunities for conversations and better understanding of race and culture. 2 sessions of the Human Library TM will be held between 12:00 PM- 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM- 4:00 PM in partnership with the Red Deer Public Library, wherein ‘human books’ are available to be ‘read’ by community members. The Human LibraryTM provides space for dialogue that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices. The human books will come from different parts of the world and will share their knowledge, culture and experiences. Proud to be Your Neighbour lawn signs and pins will also be distributed at the RDLIP booth.
“It is so exciting to be working with RDLIP on Canada Day and to share their anti racism campaign on ‘Proud to be Your Neighbor’. This year celebrates that Canada is appreciative of our multiculturalism and diversity”, says RDCHS Manager Delores Coghill.
“We are excited to collaborate with the RDCHS for this year’s Canada Day event. We want to continue to share stories about how diversity helps, how it makes our communities stronger. Canada Day will mark the end of the campaign and signals the beginning of the next phase of RDLIP’s anti racism work,” says RDLIP Interim Program Manager Kristine Bugayong.
