Calgary Stampede The Calgary Stampede invites you to dust of your boots, put on your cowboy hat and join us for a ten-day, city-wide western celebration. From the two-and-a-half-mile parade and the Stampede Rodeo’s Richest Afternoon to free pancake breakfasts, five stages of live music and adrenaline-pumping midway rides, there’s something for everyone at the Calgary Stampede. Every afternoon 20,000 fans gather to see the toughest cowboys and cowgirls face off in bareback, saddle bronc and bull riding, barrel racing and more. In the evening, the Stampede puts on the world’s most unique double header, starting with the GMC Rangeland Derby chuckwagon races. Once the last wagon thunders across the finish line, the Grandstand Show will dazzle crowds with a star-studded lineup of feature performers, including The Young Canadians of the Calgary Stampede – a group of energetic youth performers with world-class vocals and precise choreography. To top it all off, a spectacular fireworks finale lights up the sky. Did you know that the Stampede is one of Canada’s largest music festivals? Catch world-renowned headliners at the Virgin Mobile Stampede Concert Series, country music favourites at Nashville North and North America’s hottest young artists at the Coca-Cola stage. A Stampede experience is not complete without a visit to Indian Village, where guests experience Canadian First Nations culture and traditions. While you’re exploring agriculture exhibits, playing midway games, checking out the marketplace or the Western Art Showcase, make sure to taste the famous mini donuts, wood-fired BBQ and anything and everything deep-fried, bacon-wrapped or on a stick.
