A must when visiting Calgary

It is "Calgary-the-Cowtown". Enjoy more of the cowboy "stuff" than the over priced Conklin fair grounds. Rodeo and chuckwagons are the best way to experience the Stampede.

A sick, depraved carnival of animal torture, binge drinking and general douche-baggery that attracts the worst elements, and gives an otherwise wonderful, cosmopolitan city an embarrassing black eye. It's the 21st century. No need for this hillbilly fest anymore.

First time at the Stampede in 2014. Tons of fun and excitement for all ages. Games, incredible food, exhibits and tons of Intertainment throughout the 10 days. Definitely worth the visit and equal to the hype I had herd.

The city of Calgary is alive during the 10 days of the Stampede. Free pancake breakfasts can be found all over town and the night life is wild. The grounds have many free events including concerts nightly. The rodeo (afternoons) and chuck wagons races (evenings) are not to be missed. Also many top name music acts come to town. Rides,...

The Calgary Stampede is a 10 day event, that starts off with a huge parade. At the Stampede grounds, there are all sorts of events and exhibits, the most interesting is the Indian Village, where there are about 20 inhabited Teepees, and Native dancing. There is a very large stadium, where they have rodeo events, and in the evening, chuckwagon... More

The Calgary Stampede is one of the best run events you will ever experience. It really is what you make of it. I was there on business and wasn't expecting a lot but came out a lifelong fan. It's a very unique venue with a lot of different rodeo events. By far my favorite event were the Chuckwagon Races. They... More

For what it is, it is a really well run venue with some volunteers who have great hearts. Just remember this is a rodeo, an agriculture fair, a midway and a chuck wagon race with a few musical shows thrown in. If you have a problem spending money on rides and food or don't think horses, steers and calves should... More
