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.

We attended this event as a mature couple in July 2016. They bill it as the biggest outdoor show in the world, which is probably an overblown boast, but it is certainly very good. It runs for about 2 weeks every summer. It comprises lots of sideshows, fun rides, outdoor shows (for example a dog performance show), a certain number... More

Our travel agent told us the Stampede was on while we were in this part of Canada. Had heard about it so thought why not go and see what it's all about.Total cost for 2 people $281.79 includes entry into the grounds and seats for the night-time show. We were able to buy and print tickets from home {in Australia}... More

I've been going to the Stampede for 40 years, and just love it. People from all over the world come to see and participate in our agriculture exhibits and fairs, to watch the rodeo and Grandstand Show, the chuckwagon races and the midway. There are artisans, artists, all sorts of great fair food - classics and new/gross/shocking - and more.... More

Every year is a different experience at the Calgary Stampede. The rodeo itself has the same events but the grounds have wonderful free shows like Canine Stars and the Adrenaline Ranch with motorbikes and skidoos and the Peking Acrobats and it is fabulous just to walk around and see all the exhibits. The Grandstand show this year was very good... More

This Calgary Stampede was one of the greatest because there ws no livestock deaths during the long 10 days of performances. Unfortunately , due to bad rainy weather the Stampede attendance was lower than expected but hopefully 2017 the crowds will be back.

WE have gone to the Calgary Stampede for many years. I have to say that the 2016 was one of the greatest for us. We thoroughly enjoyed the Chuck Wagon event and the Evening Show was absolutely stunning this year We came away thoroughly delighted. The Fireworks were the best we had even seen in all the years that we... More
