The biggest out door show on earth. A defiant must see! Not only the event but the whole city gets amped up for the 10 day experience. It's so fun because everyone is a cow girl or cowboy for the week. Bust out your cowboy boots your gonna enjoy this ride !

It really is true to its name. The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth. You can see live bands, play games, see a rodeo, go on rides, try practically anything deep fried, and many other things. Each year brings new things, so its always worth checking out year after year. When Stampede time comes Calgary becomes crazy for CS and over... More

The grounds is a must go for all tourists, however, for those that are local Calgarians, it's the same thing every year and over priced. Food is expensive and so it admission.

A time of cowboys:) It's a week of high rest and business contact in Calgary. I recommend you have a cowboy hat or boots :). You can see a festival of provinces, attractions, rodeo etc.

Great times for those looking to enjoy the best rodeo show. They have events during the day and chuckwagons at night followed by fireworks. It is pricey, you will spend $100.00 in the first 20 minutes so be careful as rides and games have all increased in price over the years.

I have lived in Calgary for 37 years and love Stampede time. The city more then doubles in size for the 10 days but it's great to see the many people from all over the world visit. The parade which kicks off the stampede is like none other. The rodeo and chuck wagon races are something not to be missed.... More

If you're in the Calgary area, or visiting, be sure to partake in the Stampede. You won't be disappointed. It's a huge event, with numerous FREE pancake breakfasts, a parade that is second to none, and everywhere you look you'll find everyone wearing cowboy hats and boots throughout the city. Don't miss this if the opportunity presents itself!

I know that is their slogan, but I've always loved going to the stampede! it is so much fun, you can get lost in the culture and history and if you don't like the red neck side of things, stay out of the party tent and avoid the idiots, it's not too hard. I enjoyed partaking in all the oddity... More

Be prepared to spend anywhere from 150.00 to 200.00 for the day for a family of 4. It's a lot of hype. Yes they have the rodeo, the chucks, the rides and agrium buildings, however everything is extra. You have to pay entrance fee, then buy tickets to the rodeo if thsts what you like or buy tickets to the... More
