This fall’s Food and Beverage Expo at Westerner Park in Red Deer is postponed to next spring

Pandemic restrictions blamed

History is repeating itself in a way that no one wants: The upcoming Food and Beverage Expo at Westerner Park has been postponed due to pandemic restrictions.

“We will not be able to execute our show to the standards you have come to expect from us or we expect from ourselves,” stated a message posted to social media by Alberta Food and Beverage Expo organizers.

They have moved the show to April 2022, again at Westerner Park, saying any purchased tickets will be honoured at that time (but complementary tickets will not be accepted next spring).

“We have some new amazing technology that we are super excited for Red Deer to experience and have secured gates for the next couple of years so we aren’t going anywhere,” organizers stated.

“We just have to weather this unfortunate turn of events as best we can and put our best foot forward to continue putting on the best show we can .”

Organizers thanked Red Deerians for continued support “at this difficult time.”
