I have been to Calgary 5 or 6 times and the Stampede is a must. Buy a cowboy hat and boots and enter the fun of it. Wonder through the Stampede ground with its hot food stalls, bars, gift stalls and then onto the main event. The rodeo during the day and the chucks (Chuck Wagon racing) at night. Its... More

great overall experience, the western oasis is the best part for me as it's the quietest part of the grounds. grandstand show can be very pricey, but worth it.

The Calgary Stampede is an event that everyone can find something awesome to do. There are rides for kids and beer gardens for parents, crazy food on a stick and many big name concerts. This festival is definitely worth making the trip out for.

Lots of thrill rides. Variety of food including barbeque, fish and chips, burgers, hot dogs, etc. Night show on Saturday was exciting but was only chuck wagon races with no other rodeo events. Races last 1.5 hours then there is an intermission and night show with fireworks to end show. Night show included a variety of acts with acrobatics, singing,... More

I first went to the Calgary Stampede in 1975 and then again in 1980. In 1980 everyone was blaring "The Rodeo Song" from their open car windows. On the first trip many of the roads were still dirt and any step into any road would stop traffic in any direction. Since the laws have been made more liberal for a... More

I have always loved the Calgary Stampede. They have shows for every age group. You can go to heavy horse shows, hypnotist shows, super dog shows, and even concerts. They hold different competitions that anyone can enter. They have games for people to play and win. The stampede has a huge fairground with a whole bunch of rides. This is... More

It is ten days where the Rodeo comes to life. There is literally fun for the whole family. It can be an adults only event or it can be a Family event all... More

We had never been to a stampede before so didn't really know what to expect. Calgary Stampede is the one to go to! We had an amazing time watching the stampede, the showmanship and expertise of the men and women were amazing. Afterwards there's a huge fair so you can spend many hours wandering around. There are also night time... More
