To avoid if you do not like amusement parks with young overstrung teenagers who do not stop shouting t if you have no admission tickets for the rodeo. Some exhibitions of interest nothing more.

We took two days to explore the Stampede. Loved the Rodeo and the exhibits. We went to some exhibitions that we were not familiar with previously, such as "horse cutting" and learned a lot. Folks were very helpful and friendly. Food was the usual carnival type junk, and pretty pricey, so if you have a family you may want to... More

Been there done it bought the cowboy hat....not a thing that I would rush back to. Went to chuck wagon race which was good the rodeo was fantastic, night show was a little disappointing. The actual grounds for the stampede is like a huge fair ground. Food trucks everywhere...great choice of food (scorpian pizza) good shows within the Saddle Dome.... More

Went to my first ever Stampede. It's massive and people certainly dressed up for it - gallon hats and boots (yes, in the heat). Tried poutine (am non Canadian), pulled pork and the corn wrapped with bacon (absolute yum). The chuck wagon races were exciting and nearly lost my voice in all the shouting encouraging the riders. Went to see... More

We went for the 100th celebrations and it was a good day. Lots of food, rides and things to see. We did not see the horse races, turned out was maybe a good thing as there was a bad accident which horses were injured in

Firstly I would like to say that for the money the stampede is excellent value with so much to see and so much going on. We were extra lucky as when we turned up the chuck wagon riders were signing autographs and allowing people to pose for photos with them. This didn't come with any extra charges and they were...

I love everything about the Stampede! I don't attend the parade, but only because of my age & health which have slowed me down a bit and make me pick and choose the crowds I will join!!! However, I always watch the parade on TV, as well as all the events every night. I love the way everyone gets involved... More
