This Westerner Days will be Well Worth the Ride!

See you at Westerner Park, July 17 to 21

How do you size up to a T.rex?

Step into the new Westerner Park Exhibition Hall to find out during this year’s Westerner Days celebration, chock full of new offerings and longtime favourites that make Central Alberta’s largest summer event “Well Worth the Ride!”

Running through the course of the fair, July 17 to 21, Dinosaurs Unearthed: Predator versus Prey will fill a full half the 52,000-square-foot hall with 26 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs, 20 fossils and various interactive activities.

Meet species from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, learn which dinosaurs fought each other, the kind of damage done in battles and how palaeontologists piece together clues from these ancient worlds.

From staring up into the eyes of a feathered T. rex juvenile or comparing the weight of your entire family to a T. rex, to playing palaeontologist while unearthing fossils from a dig table, Dinosaurs Unearthed: Predator versus Prey offers a unique and exciting learning experience for all ages.

Admission is $10.50 (fees and taxes included), with children 3 & younger free. And with so much to see and do at Westerner Days, you can also save time at the park by buying your tickets online through Tickets Alberta!

Tag with a twist!

Taking full advantage of the darkened setting for the dinosaur exhibit, the other half of the Exhibition Hall will be turned over to Laser Tag, operating from noon to 10 p.m.

Presented by, live action adventuring lets you reimagine your favourite stories and play them in real life, whether it’s doing battle in a post-apocalyptic world or storming the beaches of Normandy.

At the heart of the equipment is the same infrared technology used by the military in their MILES II training gear, which can keep track of individual statistics for the ultimate gaming experience!

Plan ahead to save money AND time

Knowing the midway is a big part of the Westerner Days experience for many visitors, the RAD pass, short for Ride All Day, is back by popular demand, and includes your gate admission and unlimited midway rides for any one day of Fair – you choose the day!

Not only are RAD passes 15-per-cent-off when you buy them online, you’ll also save time at the gate! From now until July 16, you can also pick up your pass at participating Central Alberta Co-op Stores and receive the same discounts.
