The Calgary Stampede is an event that you must see if you are visiting Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The Western atmosphere is second to none in the world and the entertainment is on-going and great. The facilities are never ending and to really get the meaning of the Stampede one must visit the grounds and park for no less than two... More

If you like to party and go crazy this is the place for you. Look for coupons/discounts online to reduce the somewhat pricey entrance fee. Lots of live country music and cowboy hats are expected if not required.

Each year my husband and I go to the Stampede - we love the exhibits but mostly love the Chuck wagon races and the Grandstand Show. We like to go down to the "grounds" on the express bus or the C-train (since parking is limited and expensive) and walk thru the various buildings seeing what is new (this includes the... More

it is amazing and so much fun. however jammed pack. and if you want to get into nashville north or any bar that is on the grounds or around, be sure you bring stuff to do while you wait in line. sometimes up to 6 hrs in line.

I have been going to the stampede for years and will continue to go for as long as I can. I know so many say it is expensive to get in, etc but there are coupons that you can get beforehand to save off of admission. There are so many free events that you can see throughout the day -... More

The Calgary Stampede is truly a world class show. Although the general theme is western rodeo, it is much more than that. The entire city gets involved and the party lasts for 10 days. Even the cops wear cowboy hats. Some huge names come in to do concerts, many of which are free with admission. A huge midway, lots of... More

The rodeo events to experience the cowboy heritage and their skills, the music at different venues, the midway for on old fashion fair, it's as much fun you can have with your boots on. Calgarians all dressed up in their western wear, it's a big party that goes on for ten days.
