Calgary Stampede lives up to its expectations 100%. Great food, rides, shows and amazing fireworks. If you plan to be in Calgary in The summer, time it with the Stampede. You won't regret it.

Well year after year it is almost always the same. I guess I get bored of the repetition it is so I don't enjoy it as much as I should. There are a lot of interesting things to do there if you have never been before but other than that, it loses it appeal quickly.

If you enjoy midway rides and food, rodeo, country music, and western-themed events, shows, exhibits, clothing and parties, for 10 days, then Stampede is right up your alley. Highly recommended. Just know that on the Stampede grounds, your beer choices are Bud and Bud Lite, I think I saw Bud Lime one year, and the number of divorce cases goes... More

If you have never been this IS a must see. BUT I can say it never changes. Once you've done it, you've done it.

If you have ever wanted to party with 1+ million cowboys then the Calgary Stampede is the celebration for you. Every year for 10 days the city of Calgary Alberta Canada morphs from an Oil & Gas business center into the old west where everyone is a cowboy. The heart of this celebration is found at the Calgary Stampede grounds... More

Every July - for 10 days after the first Friday of the month...Calgary puts on their cowboy duds and revisits the old west. Free breakfast (flapjacks and sausages) everyday somewhere in the city! What's not to like! Of course there is the bronco busting and all the other rodeo fun...but be sure to catch the bull riding! How do they... More

This review is for city people and foreigners. Not cowboys or farmers. So bear with me... The Calgary Stampede is a lot of fun. The city really slows down to celebrate and almost every one dresses up like a cowboy(girl). Even if you have never been close to a horse you can pretend along with everyone else... Most people here... More

Attending the Calgary Stampede is a must. The whole city parties for 10 days. The rodeo and chuckwagon races are thrilling to watch. Going to a pancake breakfast is mandatory. There are several everyday. Nightlife is party time. And everyone wears jeans to work for 10 days. A must for your bucket list. Fun for all ages.
