Expensive bad food.Long lines.If you live in a trailer park the stampede is for you. Don't waste your time and money at the stampede.

When you attend the Stampede its not just the Rodeo and Stampede grounds , Its the City unwinding. Everywhere there is free Stampede Breakfast ,Lunchs and dinners. The city of Calgary is in party mode . Truly a unique experience.

Obviously we were too late in August to actually see the Stampede, but we saw the site and had time to walk around and take photos, and visit the museum. It was very interesting, particularly for the overview of military history.

Excellent! Not really a cowboy person, but had the greatest time, the atmosphere was just amazing as were the fireworks at the end of the night! Would not have missed it ! But don't forget your hat and cowboy boots ! Fantastic fun for all ages, plenty to see and do ! Not to be missed!
