Action packed - lots of side shows. Many horse events to choose from. Should be on every horse-lovers bucket list.

To preface this review - I'm not a big country or rodeo fan at all. With that being said, the Stampede was a lot of fun and it's like a city-wide party for a week straight. I was in Calgary during the Stampede for work and was stuck in the city during the final weekend. I expected the Stampede grounds... More

One of the main purpose of my family visiting Calgary in Jul is for this event. Kids can have fun on the rides. Some games guarantee prize for small kids. You can pet the horses, goats and cows. You can play cow boys or cow girls. Music and shows you can watch. You will enjoy!

We spent 3 days on the Stampede grounds, during which we enjoyed the food, afternoon and evening shows, and various scheduled events. There are lots of people, but it's big with many different things to do and see! There are also 4 places that we found to purchase alcohol (the tent with the live music, the place with the mechanical... More

I attended the chuckwagons this year on July 11, 2014. A bunch of us had VIP box seating. You are literally on the infield. These tickets are pricey but if you have never tried these seats I suggest trying them once. Your pass will get you into the grounds for free and you can watch the grandstand show afterwards. As...

We took are 2 year old on kids day. It was a mad house, but my little had fun. Went again two days later with just the hubby, and much more enjoyable ( far less people) would recommend going right when it opens for the day as no line ups for attractions and not as hot out. Loved the shopping... More

My wife and I attended the rodeo twice, the evening show oneca nad the Paul Brandt concert. While it is a large state fair atmosphere it was a ton of fun. I do recommend getting good seats for the rodeo if seeing it is important to you.
