The chuckwagon racing was wild and wooly - a helter skelter of action. Great bucking stock at the rodeo and top cowboys. And the night concert, followed by the fireworks was spectacular.

I'm from here and sometimes still partake in the festivities. If you are visiting Calgary, here are a things to try/consider: 1. Like to see live (and amazing big name) concerts? Check ticketmaster EARLY to reserve tickets for people like Blake Shelton, Alan Jackson, etc. Yes, most are country singers, but some aren't, so check it out online. 2. Want... More

We only managed to get to Calgary for the carnival parade. A great fun couple of hours, shame we could not fit in a trip to the Stampede itself, sounds like great fun.

Loved our visit to the Stampede which was all we hoped for and more. Very exciting and extremely hot. So much to do and so many people. Loved the Indian Village and Heavy Horse Show, plus all the other exhibits. Well worth visiting.

This was my first time attending the stampede and the attendance was great. Getting the connecting train to the next stop stampede ground from City Hall was literally impossible. The train was pack. Then at the entrance we have to join a long queue to pay for the ticket to get in. This scenario is repeated many times as we... More

Our first Calgary Stampede, which coincided with when we were going to be in Calgary, and I'm so glad it did. We had so much fun! As part of visiting I highly recommend spending the money to go to the Chuckwagon races and the Evening Show at the Grandstand, it was very entertaining. But even if we had not gone... More

There were heaps of food options available. The second day we watched shows and attended the evening show and chuck wagon races. There was lots to see and do.... More

This was our first time to Calgary and indeed the Calgary Stampede. Every person in our group enjoyed the experience. You don't necessarily need to love horses or Rodeo's to enjoy the Stampede. There is never a dull moment. You cannot help being impressed by the cowboys skills and courage. We went for two days with the highlight for my... More

Coming from the south, and growing up competing in livestock shows and rodeos. I must say I was really impressed on what an experience the Stampede was. Honestly, not much different from the ones we have in Texas! Now you better be ready to drop some coin on food and beverages because beers alone are $7. Overal I had a... More
