Thanks to everyone who helped with CentreFest

Elvis has left the city, but then, so have the rest of the performers from the CentreFest. The good news is: CentreFest will return next year!

CentreFest is a two-day street performing festival in our downtown.

Red Deer is very fortunate to partner with the Edmonton International Street Performers where we are entertained by extraordinary performers, near and far.

To our amazing supporters: Presenter ATB, the City of Red Deer, KG Country, Z99, 106.7 The Drive, Big 105, Sunny 94, the Red Deer Advocate and the Red Deer Express thank you just doesn’t seem to be enough: without your much appreciated support, CentreFest would not have been the success it was.

To Rotary East and to the many who contributed monetarily and gift-in-kind, a big thank you!

Events of this calibre can only happen when generous organizations, groups and individuals step up to the plate.

Volunteers make our city a good place to live.

We couldn’t have done it without the many who volunteered for the two days.

To our festival director, Esterina Manyluk and our hard working board, a big bouquet! And finally, to you the public, you made the street and avenue come alive with your laughter, shouts and cheering. You are the best.
