Every July, millions of people come to Calgary's Stampede Park to take part...

Every July, millions of people come to Calgary's Stampede Park to take part in one of the world's largest rodeos and other popular activities such as chuckwagon racing and agricultural shows. The event's origins date back to 1912, when American Guy Weadick, a successful trick roper, got support to host an event called "Stampede" to celebrate the "disappearing" Old West. Since then, the event has grown drastically and has evolved into a celebration of the Old West, while reflecting the modern, multicultural aspects of the city.

The Calgary Stampede is phenominal.... the entire city turns inside out - even employees of local businesses dress up for the week - cowboy boots, hats, flannel shirts and country dresses! Its hard not to get caught up in the spirit of everything! Its not cheap so be prepared to spend about $150 per adult including show tickets, food, beverages... More

Stampede is an event you must see at least once in your life. It's huge and so many attractions to see. We had a blast. The evening show was extraordinary, so were the chuckwagon races and the Rodeos. I recommend taking the city train to get to the site and to go anywhere in Calgary because it's practical, simple an... More

A fun time for those who wish to experience a little "cowboy/girl" lifestyle with all the music and rodeo events with a strong country flavour. There are amusement park rides, rodeo events and lot's of restaurant bars hosting free breakfasts. Lot's of partying in the evenings, as well as main stage shows featuring headliner acts.

Soo much to see and do. Top name acts come every year to help us celebrate. I need many days to visit the grounds. Trade shows, carnival and rides, rodeo, chucks and night show are a must. The entire city is in Western Party Mode and friendly faces, cowboy hats and good cheer. Pancake breakfasts all over the city, pop... More

Be it the on-grounds Grandstand show, the parade, the Rodeo, the breakfasts, the BBQs, the informal western dress code throughout the city, or the beautiful sun with occasional lightning storms, it is all fun during July's Stampede! (Mind you, I'm biased having met my wife volunteering there 46 years ago).

This is an annual summer event in Calgary that is a lot of fun! Food, worth watching especially the different types burgers and steaks are out of this world! Tremendous food variety! All the 'cowboy' events such as the chuck wagon races are worth watching and the day ends with a great fire works show!
