Calgary Stampede

Use our experience to incorporate the Calgary Stampede and build these into a Western Canada Fly Drive.

In 1884 when Calgary was no more than a dot on the Bow River the Calgary Agricultural Society was formed. Two years later their first exhibition was held. This grew and by 1912 an experience that has since become known as the Calgary Stampede was fully functioning.

The Stampede

Each year at the time of the Stampede the city of Calgary, which during the rest of the year is the hub of the oil, ranching and farming business of Alberta, parties like no other city in the world. The Stampede, which claims to be the world’s largest and greatest outdoor show, is full of parades, rodeo and chuck wagon racing and nightly musical extravaganzas. The musical extravaganza culminates with a spectacular firework display, which truly adds to the whole “Stampede” experience.

Top Tips for Really Enjoying the Stampede

1. To experience the Stampede we highly recommend you book a 2/3 night city stay.
2. Why not get there for the opening day and experience the Calgary Stampede Opening Day Parade.
3. Get ready to experience the Stampede and party.

And There is More

The Stampede grounds not only host the two performances listed below, but a major agricultural show, a giant midway show (that’s American for fun fair). If you are interested in music, there is some great live music in the showground including Nashville North, which during the Stampede period hosts some of the top Country & Western artists from across America. The choice is yours. Order your tickets today. We regret that we cannot supply just Calgary Stampede tickets without other elements.
