Westman Disability Day

May 18, 2023

Brandon, MB. – The Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba, in association with both the Brandon and Wheat City
Lions Clubs are pleased to announce the return of Westman Disability Day to the Manitoba Summer Fair.
While the Fair is scheduled to run from June 7-11th in Brandon, Westman Disability Day has been scheduled for
Thursday, June 8th from 1-3pm.

This year’s event will feature a delicious lunch, hosted by Heritage Co-op, is open to all individuals who
experience physical and/or intellectual disabilities (and their caregivers). In addition to lunch, these Western
Manitobans will have the opportunity to enjoy the midway at their own pace. Because it is a closed event, a variety of midway rides will be available as well as an exclusive tour of the KidZone, Petting Zoo attractions, and Dr. Von Houligan’s Family Extravaganza!

New this year to Westman Disability Day, there will be horse-drawn wheelchair-accessible wagon rides.
For those interested in attending, you must register at or by contacting our
Dome Building office at (204) 726-3590. These tickets must be picked up at the Provincial Exhibition office or
online before arriving at the admission gates that day.

“Westman Disability Day is very dear to me,” says Provincial Exhibition Program and Volunteer Manager
Kristen Laing Breemersch. “I believe that everyone deserves the same opportunities within a safe environment.
The Provincial Ex is an inclusive organization that provides education, activities, and entertainment to all ages
and skill levels.”

“We’re so excited to have this event back and feel fortunate to have the generous support from Heritage Co-op
and Brandon’s two Lions clubs,” she added.

This day has been made possible this year thanks to the generous financial support from the Brandon and Wheat
City Lions clubs as well as Operation Red Nose Brandon and the Westman & Area Traditional Christmas

General admission and POP (Pay one Price) tickets are also available at as well
as both Brandon and Minnedosa Heritage Co-op food banks. As well, “free” children’s general admission
passes are available online until Tuesday, June 6th.

Fantastic food, family fun, entertainment and the thrill of the midway! The Manitoba Summer fair is how we’ve
been kicking off summer in Manitoba for over 130 years.
