About
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.

Becoming so expensive!!
Aug 2021 • Couples
I am born and raised in Calgary and have been stampeding for years. The price is becoming ridiculous. Parking in now 25.00. Admission is 20. A water gum game to win a cheap teddy bear is now 10 bucks! A drink is 5. I say save your cash for Disney lol.

First visit to Stampede
Jul 2021 • Couples
Was our first time going to the Stampede. Had a great time. Entry was a little slow due to the e-ticket system. Lots of great food vendors, especially the BBQ stations. Lots of live entertainment with the Stampede band , dog show, etc. Did not go to the rodeo as that isn’t really our thing. The skyway ride gave a great view of the park.

Amazing, amazing, amazing!

Thanks you for showing the rest of Canada normal can happen again. The rodeo was fun and great to watch and evening show was nothing but epic, maybe this was because it the first big thing sense COVID but no mater the reason it was great.

Thank you to everyone who help make this happen.

Excellent show and attractions, but the extremely bad staff, esp. security (they are lying, arrogant and they can spoil the day)

What a shame the stampede wouldn’t be holding this year. Had mad fun last year with friends. We had lovely steak on the go and got to experience the culture. Saw the biggest horses that I have ever seen and there was plenty to do for the kids. I’ll definitely attend yearly if I am in town.

Lots of people, rodeo and show cost extra, half the showground is a fun fair
Jul 2019
Had a two day package as part of a wider trip. The Stampede park is exceptionally busy particulalry around the food and funfair areas. The rodeo was great but spectators can be a long way away. Evening show was spectacular, both included in our package but an expensive extra if just turning up. Glad we did it but wouldn't go again

Always a world class event!
Jul 2019
This is the Calgary event of the year where everyone lets their hair down and becomes a cowboy/cowgirl for a day or two. Generally speaking the weather is excellent at this time of year, so staying hydrated is important. Don't miss the nightly fireworks display as it is absolutely stunning!

Cowtown extravaganza

Still as popular as ever the Stampede drags in wranglers, riders, racers, horses & cows, with the tipi village as present as ever. The evening glitzy song& dance shows seem to be getting somewhat naffer than in the past however
