People come from all over the world to experience the 10 days of Stampede. With good reason! It only happens for one week, so if you are planning on coming, come at the right time. People often travel expecting it to be all year -- the festival part only happens for a short time. The rest of the year is... More

If you have never been what are you waiting for ? There is something there for everyone Rodeo. Chuck wagon races. Headliner music, rides and so much more. The City of Calgary is crazy electric with cowboys & cowgirls. It truly is well worth a trip to check things out for yourself!!!

At my first Calgary Stampede nearly 30 years ago I was dumbfounded, amazed and delighted at the exuberant transformation that takes over the entire city of Calgary. For 10 days every summer we become the Wild West again as cowboy hats, horses, street dances, FREE Stampede breakfasts and native regalia fill the city. I love the celebration of diverse cultures...

I visited the Stampede over two days - saw the chuck wagon racing and the evening show and then the next day stayed for the rodeo. We had great (pre booked) seats and were under cover on both occasions -which was great, given the rain that poured down during the first evening and then we had protection from the sun... More

After living in Calgary for over 20 years and visiting the stampede many times, we finally splurged for the Lazy S this year and were so glad we did. It was a wonderful way to enjoy the rodeo (it is also open for the Chuckwagon and Grandstand show with fireworks). It's a very comfortable way to visit the stampede, it... More

Everyone should take the opportunity to go if they can, the parade was amazing....the show ground had so much to do, eat,drink and see... The rodeo was awesome, chuck wagons exciting and the evening show was fabulous, we loved every second. The Canadians are such friendly folks, we had paid for bleachers under the Tower, well worth the effort... I... More

The main reason of our trip was to spend a couple of days at the Stampede Park. Got to see the afternoon Rodeo and the evening Chuck Wagon races and the evening show/fireworks. Well worth a visit to take in the sights, sounds and smells of this event.

Was fantastic. Great experience I will definitely go again. Loved the super dogs and the Stampede. 2 days wasn't enough time to see everything that we wanted to. The artwork building is amazing and would recommend it to everyone even if your not into art you can't help but be amazed. One of our best holidays ever and would recommend... More
