I organized my trip to Canada all around the Calgary Stampede which was my very last stop before flying home the next day. It was a great end to an awesome holiday.
I went to the afternoon rodeo events, not the evening show.
Having visited the Calgary Stampede during my youth, I was unsure what to expect 30 years afterward.... it was better than ever! The variety of activities going on at any given time allows visitors to be as busy or relaxed as they choose. The draft...More
Spent hours in the Agrium building looking at livestock. Top notch facility with exceptional animal welfare attention. Loved the rodeo and bull riding. All kinds of crazy midway foods to try. The BMO Center building has tonnes of vendors and artwork to see. Saw the...More

There are several resources around to look for alternates. The World Professional Chuckwagon Association has its own website with a schedule, but I don't know how far ahead it nails things down. Also, the Professional Canadian Rodeo Association has a website as well. It's really only Banff and Calgary that are out-of-this-world busy in July. For a less hectic pace, with equally stunning scenery, you could try Waterton NP, Jasper NP, or the Kananaskis area, depending on how you plan to get around what exactly you want to experience. I wouldn't rule out July, but you might find some gems at other points in the year. We have a VERY short summer here. They ski in the high mountains until the end of May, so things aren't green until after then, and hiking in the Alpine isn't snow free until the end of June. And we got our first dump of snow now, mid September...
I will be looking for a hotel near the Calgary airport on Sun July 8, unfortunately during the Calgary Stampede. Any recommendations? I have an early flight out on Mon. morning to Toronto. Thanks

Calgary Stampede Lottery tickets (2 Replies)
I have been reading the Calgary Stampede website and there is mention that we can get evening show tickets thru this "lottery". Any one have further information on this. Not sure how to do this. Also, when choosing seats, any recommendations for seats or are they pretty much all good seats. Thanks

Local service clubs (Lions, Kinsmen, Rotary Club) have, for decades, organized a number of different Calgary Stampede lotteries - the prizes are things like boats, cars, a house, cash, and much more. It looks like this new promotion. I looked at the website and I was pretty confused, too, about the details, so I gave them a phone call. Bottom line: Neither the advance-sale lottery tickets nor the accompanying 50% discount for the evening show or rodeo are available to people without an...More
