The Calgary Stampede is awesome for absolutely EVERYONE. There are tons of kid-friendly activities such as visiting the stables, the fair, concerts, games, etc. But for the adults there are beer gardens, tons of cool and weird foods, rodeo, shows, etc. I highly recommend visiting this historic event!!!

Very good value. They have alot of venues that you can go to for free. It was good weather. Lots of people though and the gaming people were very friendly... The water is expensive though

The best time to visit Calgary is during Stampede - the first week of July. To start off, take in the 2 + hour long parade on Friday morning - it's a parade like no other with bands & floats from all over the world. There are free Stampede Caravan pancake breakfasts all over the city, free entertainment (Native dancing,... More

Every single year for as long as I can remember we have gone to the Calgary Stampede. Starting with the parade on the first Friday - and attending the rodeo, midway, grandstand events and everything in between. The parade is absolutely AMAZING - it provides hours of entertainment for people of all ages. The mjdway has every possible ride -... More

You must come to Calgary during the stampede. The free pancake breakfasts and shows throughout the city are fun. I enjoy the grounds as well...likely spend most of my time...away...from the midway, because there is so much more to do. The Chuck wagons are worth seeing and I like the grand stand as well. The whole city becomes involved. Checkout... More

The Calgary Stampede has many facets and therefore does not fit into the multiple choice checklist. There are many free events and events vary from highly sophisticated to impromptu. I have attended on numerous occasions and at numerous separate events. This is a festival which engages the whole city. We go usually as a couple or with families.

You can't see and do everything in a day. Take the time to visit all the aspects of this event. This includes rodeo, Chuckwagons and grandstand show. However go see the heavy horses dancing to the Symphony, explore Alberta Agriculture, check out the great entertainment and the art show. Well worth the trip.
