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!!!
Great first time experience. Loved the rodeo and chuck wagon racing.
Good day added bonus of a surprise performance from kiss parking and directions poor food typical of a theme park less horsey than hoped and only tacky things to buy
We enjoyed our brief stay in Calgary and were impressed with the spirit of the people and the recovery from the flood. We attended a Sat. (July 8) evening session of the rodeo and were disappointed that the only rodeo event was the chuckwagon races (which we enjoyed), but no other rodeo events. When we purchased our tickets on-line we were aware of the other event times on that day, but no description of the events at those times were given. No being familiar with the rodeo schedule left us somewhat disappointed. The "show" that evening was amazing and our grandchildren really enjoyed it.
Loved the rodeo, but had a lot of difficulty with the Viator voucher. We had to go to two different places in Stampede Park to get into the show grounds, as there was no barcode on the voucher. We missed about 1/2 hour of the show and the tickets were . Definitely disappointed with that mess.
The Evening show is fantastic Chuckwagen race and shows. Rodeo is ok if you don't have a white hat
