All ticket sales are final. You adhere to The Rules of Conduct and Conditions of Entry by purchasing a ticket. In some cases, there may be extra terms and conditions based on specific events decided by the promoter.
The holder grants permission to Tickets Alberta and affiliates, the league, and the promoter of the event to utilize the holder’s image, likeness, actions, and statements in any live or recorded audio, video, or photographic display or other transmissions, exhibition, publication, or reproduction made of or at the event in any medium or context for editorial, commercial, promotional, and security purposes without further authorization or compensation.
Assumption of Risk
The holder accepts all risks related to any event for which your ticket is issued, whether occurring prior to, during or after the event. Holder agrees that the facility, Management, employees, performers, and Paciolan are not liable for injuries, losses, or fraudulent use arising from the ticket purchase for this event.
Payment, Refunds and Exchanges
Your ticket is a revocable license, subject to termination with denial of admission at Management’s discretion. If the holder violates The Rules of Conduct deemed appropriate by Management, you will not be entitled to a refund. There are only refunds or exchanges if the event’s promoter decides otherwise. Tickets are not redeemable for cash. Refunds must be submitted in the original payment used at purchase. Your purchase will be listed as TICKETS ALBERTA on your credit card statement. Third-party purchases will not be refunded. We refund the base price minus all fees.
Ticket Mail Out, Pickup and Voids
If your tickets are being mailed to you, please contact us ten business days before the event if you are still waiting to receive them. We can reprint your tickets on the day of the event (reprint fees will apply), provided you present the order confirmation, the credit card used to purchase, and a valid photo ID. Tickets which are lost, stolen, counterfeit, or obtained from unauthorized and third sources will be void.
The promoter and/or venue determines rain check policies. Events indicating “RAIN OR SHINE” will not be offered compensation based on inclement weather.
Professional photography of any kind is prohibited for ticket purchasers at the event. Furthermore, Tickets Alberta and affiliates, the league, and the promoter of the event reserve the right to use any images, audio, video, or other recordings of the ticket holder for editorial, commercial, or promotional purposes without any additional authorization or payment.
For some events, there may be limits set on ticket purchases. These are determined by the event’s promoter and not set by Tickets Alberta.
Obstructed and Limited View Seat Policy
Some seats in your order may have a limited or obstructed view due to the seat and event (seating will be labelled appropriately online). These will be labelled with descriptions such as ‘obstructed view,’ ‘limited view,’ or ‘blocked view.’ We can only sometimes judge what portion of the stage you will not see, as this varies for every event and is also affected by your height and the height of those patrons in front of you. Unfortunately, these seats are not eligible for exchanges or refunds.
Cancelled, Rescheduled, Postponed Events
If an event is cancelled, rescheduled, or postponed, Tickets Alberta will alert you as soon as possible. While Tickets Alberta regrets the inconvenience caused by these circumstances, we cannot be held responsible for any cost or damage that such postponement or cancellation may incur.
Cancelled Events – You will get an automatic refund for tickets bought through Tickets Alberta. We refund the base price of your ticket cost to the original form of payment and cannot refund the incurred fees.
Postponed/Rescheduled Events – your ticket(s) are still valid, and no further action is required. When it becomes available, we will contact you with the new date and time. However, the promoter of the event may approve refunds or the option to choose between a refund or a credit for the event. Any refund and/or credit policies are determined event-by-event by the event’s promoter. They may be subject to limitations set by the promoter of the event. If the promoter of the event approves refunds and/or credits, we will send you a notification explaining your options, and you may submit a request for a refund or credit. Alternatively, you may keep your ticket(s) to the postponed, rescheduled, or moved event.

Westerner Park is committed to providing all patrons and staff a safe, healthy, and enjoyable environment. In return, we ask you to respect our facilities and contribute to an enjoyable event for all our patrons. In support of this, entry into a Westerner Park venue is subject to specific conditions.
Refusal of Entry from the Venue
To ensure public safety, Westerner Park reserves the right to refuse entry or remove any patrons that:
- xxx the maximum number of patrons for the venue/facility has been reached;

The following items are prohibited from entering the venue unless authorized explicitly by Westerner Park:

Alberta’s Tobacco and Smoking Reduction Act (TRA) protects people from exposure to cigarette smoke by prohibiting smoking within five meters (16 feet) of a doorway, open window or air intake in a public place or workplace, including work vehicles.
The practice of “vaping” – using an electronic cigarette – falls within the definition of smoking under the City of Red Deer’s Smoke-Free Bylaw and is therefore prohibited in public places as outlined in the bylaw.
No outside food or beverages are permitted by any persons into the venue.
Beverages – Alcohol
Patrons entering Westerner Park are advised that they are entering a liquor-licensed facility. Alcoholic beverages must not be taken into or out of the Westerner Park grounds. It is an offence for minors to purchase or consume alcohol or for patrons to supply alcohol to minors. It is a condition of the liquor license for the venue that liquor cannot be brought onto the grounds and served to a specific time of day. There will be zero tolerance for intoxication.
Access will be managed via screening and checks, which may include electronic equipment scanning and/or personal body checks and any other checks deemed reasonable. It is a condition of entry that all patrons consent to have their bags, clothing or other items checked upon entry or within the venue anytime. Any patron who fails to comply with screening requests may be refused entry or removed from the venue.
Field of play and restricted areas
Ticket Holders and non-accredited patrons must not enter the field of play at any venue or any area to which access is restricted unless directed by venue personnel or Management.
Risk and Liability
All patrons enter the venue at their own risk. Each patron assumes all risk of any damage or loss (including property damage, personal injury, economic and consequential loss) however it arises at the venue.
Each patron brings personal effects into the venue at their own risk, and Westerner Park will not be responsible for any damage to or loss or theft of personal property.
By entering a venue, you agree to comply with and cooperate with Westerner Park’s Conditions of Entry.
