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.

If you've Never been here, it's a must see, but bring water and pack a lunch if you're penny pinching and go on the cheaper priced dates/times or buy the Stampede Ticket pkg for the 'full meal deal!' Dress for rain or a heat wave, leave the cowboy boots at home and wear comfortable footwear if u plan to spend... More

If you like a carnival, concerts, rodeo and the unhealthiest food on the planet this is the place for you. Money is a huge issue, if you plan to play even a little bring $100/person. More if alcohol, rodeo or gambling is on your mind. There are a lot of free things to do, especially for kids. The Indian village... More

We started with the parade on the opening day (Friday). This was one long parade. About 3 hours. Lots of marching bands, horses, cowboys and more horses! After the parade ended around lunch, we went to the exhibition grounds. There was lots to see and do. The rodeo in the afternoon was great to see. In the evening, we went... More
