Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

It's the best fun for all, no matter the age group. If you want food there is everything from deep-fried cheese to pancakes. Everyday there are major country and western to local entertainers performing either on stage for free or paid attendance. If that is not what you want than there are rodeo events everyday. The highlight of the Calgary Stampede is the fireworks everynight at dusk

No activities going on when we toured but cool to be at such a well know site. The sculpture of the horses fording the river is not to be missed.

This is an experience. There's something for everyone: horse & cattle displays and demonstrations, the Clydesdales, midway, food stalls galore, concerts and of course, the rodeo and all those cowboys! I didn't care to walk the midway so much because of the crowds but everything else was really fun. The rodeo was impressive as I knew it would be.

Really enjoyed the Calgary Stampede. Lots to do and lots to see. Really affordable fun and the whole city turns into the Stampede. Lots of free breakfasts... really just a great event to experience.
