The Canadian Final Rodeo (CFR) officially has a new home.

The 45th CFR will be taking place in Red Deer, October 30 to November 4 in the ENMAX Centrium at Westerner Park.

Several months ago, Westerner Park and Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce began working on a vision for a multi-year proposal to the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association (CPRA) and pitched their bid.

"Our city and our region has been buzzing with excitement since we went public with our proposal to host the CFR,"says Robin Bobocel, CEO of Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce. "We are a vibrant community that can accomplish anything it sets its sights on, and with the help of our partners in the community, and the CPRA, we will make CFR 2018 a huge success."

Hundreds of people turned out for the announcement last night at the ENMAX Centrium.
