Very expensive food. Expensive games and rides. I wouldn't go again. You have to pay to get in and then rodeo tickets cost extra.

We went to the Chuckwagon races and the show afterwards. I never knew that the chuckwagon races were so popular in Canada. They were very entertaining and show after was great too. Definitely great to see once in your life.

I am not a huge country fan but I found myself wanting to be a cowgirl during my trip there. If you go, try to belong, it is more fun. It is easy to get the look : dollorama sells great white cowboy hats for 2$, put a pair of jeans on and a plaid or white shirt on and... More

I lived in Calgary for 25 years, now retired in Ontario. The Calgary Stampede used to be focused on Family, but when we visited there this July, it had changed quite a bit. It seems more focused on the 18 - 39 year old crowd. Having said the above, the Rodeo is still a great show, and it has been... More

What a great day out. One of our party has some mobility problems so we hired a wheelchair to get around a surprising larger site than you imagine. The rodeo etc in the main area was fantastic and the weather was perfect. A very unusual but enjoyable day

We had a great time at the stampede. We attended both the Chuck Wagon evening show and the Rodeo and never having been to anything like that before it was fun. Food on the whole was average and quite pricey and I can imagine if you go with kids it can be an expensive day out to go on all... More

I went out from Ontario for a week to see the Stampede as I had never been. It was awesome. From the midway park to the food and the nightly chuck-wagon races. it was all great. The big draw was the rodeo in the afternoon. Hundreds of cowboys from all over North America (and two from Brazil) vying for big... More

It has been many years since I went to the Calgary Stampede. There is the typical fair ground flare with rides of all sorts. The had the best rides that a mobile operation can bring. There are the mini donuts (2 million consumed here each stampede) as well as any other food truck offering you could imagine. There are the... More

We have been to Stampede numerous times and always enjoy ourselves. The rodeo has become a must when we visit. The ticket for the rodeo also gets you admission to the park and 3 hours of great entertainment. They always have stages with various acts plus street performers. They will have named acts performing in the Saddledome some evenings. Obviously,... More

Loved it all, fab atmosphere. Seeing the expertise of the riders was awesome. Highlight for us was the evening show, loved the chuck wagon racing.
