“It's about the event not the venue.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

I like to go for the shows. The Young Canadians show and fireworks at the end of the evening are my favorites. The grounds are too busy and can end up costing you a fortune.

“One of Canada's major events”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Excellent parade on day one. On the stampede ground daily for 10 days there are animal exhibits, rodeo, great music, rides and every evening chuckwagon races followed by an excellent show.

“Craziness”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

To just wander around, there are a lot of drunk people, crowds and fried food. Rodeo shows are decent to watch for a more cultural, less hangover-worthy experience. Both are good - depends what you want.

“Great entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

This never disappoints! For a very reasonable rate you get in the gate and can enjoy so many free shows and activities. Of course the rodeo and chuckwagons are extra, but are excellent entertainment. The evening show is always great. I love that there are always great performers to get tickets too also. Saw Johnny Reed this year. . . Superb!
