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.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

Food and everything totally overpriced. Exhibits were less than last year. Main activity tents had long lineups.

“Too Big For Our Briches”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Way Overpriced. Too much Booze, sex and glam. What happened to the old west? Can't make money off that. Gotta sell overprice booze and lotto tickets and overpriced grandstand shows with local talent. Is that all people want is an excuse to party and get drunk.
