Rock'n Red Deer Downtown Cruise Night
Monday, July 20th 2009
Every three years a weekend of nostalgia returns to Red Deer in the form of Alberta SuperRun Association’s ROCK’n RED DEER. This four day event includes the Downtown Cruise Night hosted by the Downtown Business Association.
Friday, July 31st from 6 to 10 pm, downtown becomes a scene from an era gone by with hundreds of cars strutting their chrome, polished paint jobs and rumbling mufflers.
Come downtown to experience the cars, culture and music of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. The hotrods, customs and classic cars and trucks are from across the 4 western provinces and the north-west states. Come experience poodle skirts, Betty Boop, hula hoops, ducktail haircuts and of course the sounds of the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s.
Gaetz Avenue between Ross and 49th Streets will be closed to traffic to provide an area for entertainment. The music of the past will be brought back to life with special appearances by Bobby Cash and Friends with tributes to some of the greats including Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley.
Note: Parking on Ross Street will be reserved for Rock’n Red Deer registrants on Friday evening.

CentreFest once again boasts a roster of the world’s hottest street performers! The four blocks where Ross and Gaetz intersect will be the site of CentreFest 2009.
Downtown has played host to a diverse and talented array of entertainers from as far away as New Zealand and as close to home as Red Deer, Alberta. This year’s stellar cast of performers will provide an awesome spectacle of jaw-dropping sight, sound and up-close-and-personal entertainment.
It’s a show without walls, like no other. CentreFest takes place July 25th and 26th. The festival runs from 11am to 8pm on Saturday and 11am to 6pm on Sunday. Mark your calendar and join us on Friday, July 24th at noon in City Hall Park for a sneak preview of the festival performers.
New on the site this year is the Rotary Water World! It’s a place to stop and cool off with some misting water, or purchase a souvenir water bottle and fill it up at the Culligan water coolers.
Remember, CentreFest is not just for kids! It’s an all-ages entertainment event in the street. Rain or shine the show will go on! Come check out the performers, the artists, the street market and food vendors!
