Fun for the family or on your own

The stampede is just a great event. Lots of carnival like atmosphere, the rodeo and just great times hanging out with people.

Every year it's the same old stuff. Getting smaller every year and no big entertainers ever come here.this year Martina Mcbride was here but she didn't sing her big hits. Very disappointed in the whole thing.

Hmmm where to start. Long lines for food that were small portions for a high price. Not impressed with the midway or static displays/market. Drunk teens everywhere and one day was enough. Maybe expected too much after being at Edmonton Calgary and Lethbridge. The rodeo was great as always... Will go back if not just for that..

The rodeo will always be a staple of good old fashioned western entertainment and the musicians that appear each year never fail to entertain. My children enjoyed the fireworks as do we all and naturally we went on the fair ground rides. Sadly the fair is overpriced rides keep breaking down and the games folk are very pushy, almost to...

We went to the rodeo and then returned for the Martina Mcbride concert in the evening. It was a fantastic day with everything you could wish for. Great entertainment, food and fun fair. Concert fabulous.

We attend the Med Hat Exhibition and stampede every year and always absolutely love it! The food is great (though everything is $5 and more, so be prepared to spend a lot if you have kids!) We buy the wristbands at co-op for $29 instead of $43 inside the gates for better savings. We also buy seats for the rodeo/nightshows... More

You do not want to miss this annual event in July. It literally has something for everyone from the Midway to the Rodeo to the great night show entertainment to the relaxing area known as Pioneer Village where you can sneak away to spend a bit of quiet time, re-charge your batteries and then get back into the hustle and...

Summer time bring the farmers market on Saturdays with a variety of local produce and manufactured home made delicacies including fudge, pies, preserves, butchered meats and the like. Occasionally there will be local musicians entertaining the crowds.

Medicine Hat is one of the many cities and communities that boast an exhibition and stampede. Granted it is not as grand as the Calgary Stampede, but it is definitely worth attending. You see movies where there is a County Fair--well, that is kind of what the Medicine Hat Stampede is like. Besides all the normal normal horse/steer/cow events, there... More
