Loved my experience at the Calgary Stampede. So much to see and do. The show itself was great, the wagon races especially. The grounds are great to walk around and if you'd like to party the tents parties are incredible.

We spent about $500 for tickets. We had good seats and were in the shade. Go to the Stampede website and buy from their tickets office-not a reseller-and they can assist you. The folks are really good at assisting you.
