What You Can Expect

The Calgary Stampede

Evening Derby

The Calgary Stampede is one of Canada’s most famous events and one of the most authentic and memorable western experiences you could pack into a single vacation. Embrace the rodeo culture and become a cowboy or cowgirl during the annual 10-day, city-wide festival, which is host to the world’s top rodeo, thrilling chuckwagon races, live music, an Indian village, agriculture and so much more.

In 2012, the Calgary Stampede turned 100 years old. A century ago, the romance of the West was experienced across North America and Europe by millions of people who were enthralled by Wild West shows that celebrated western heritage and culture. The first Stampede in 1912 captured the energy, optimism and spirit of that era, and over the years it has continued to bring people together for an incredible cultural event.

Six major events make up the daily rodeo – bareback, bull riding, barrel racing, saddle bronc, steer wrestling and tie-down roping are the backbone of the Stampede Rodeo. Add in Novice Bareback, Novice Saddle Bronc, Junior Steer Riding and Wild Pony Racing for the youngsters and you've got the best rodeo in the world.

In addition to the rodeo and/or evening show (choose your option below), your ticket includes entrance to Stampede Park, where you’ll find rides and games, themed areas, food and drink stands, and the Skyride that takes you from one side of the park to the other.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2012

Wow! What a fun experience! I had never been to a rodeo before and didn't know what to expect, but I had an amazing time. The rodeo was fun, exciting and easy to follow and learn. All of the surrounding events within the park were really great; there were tons of rides, shows, showcases and yummy food. The town of Calgary really comes alive during the Calgary Stampede and the whole town embraces the event. The event was organized, with easy transportation and very friendly people. This year, the Calgary Stampede was celebrating their 100th year. The final, closing show was absolutely amazing! The show had dancers, acrobatics, a famous country singer and the best fireworks show I've ever seen. I can't wait to go again!!!
