JULY 8-17, 2016
The Calgary Stampede is called The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth for good reason. For 10 days every July we welcome the world to a spectacular celebration of western heritage and values.
When the first Calgary Stampede was held in 1912, the era of the Canadian Old West had only just passed. Guy Weadick famously organized and promoted the original event, and grew the Calgary Stampede into what it is today: an annual 10 day event attracting more than one million visitors each July with rodeo competitions, chuckwagon races, a midway carnival, live music, festival events, arts and culture.
The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth remains a treasured link to the history and a celebration of rodeo and agriculture. With professional rodeo as its signature experience, the Calgary Stampede also features a vast array of arts and agricultural exhibits, musical performances, intriguing cuisine, shopping, and an extensive midway of rides and games. The captivating experience is unrivalled for variety and excitement. The Stampede spirit consumes the city.
Each night’s rodeo event is followed by the TransAlta Grandstand Show starring musical performances and a spectacular fireworks show.
As the official kick-off to the Calgary Stampede, the annual Stampede Parade is a Calgary tradition. The two-and-a-half mile parade features beautiful floats, bands, horses, celebrities and cultural performances.
The Calgary Stampede celebrated its 100th Anniversary in 2012 and is the highest grossing festival in Canada . As a rodeo, exhibition, fairgrounds, and festival, the coming events officially run:
July 8-17, 2016
July 7-16, 2017
July 6 -15, 2018
July 5-14, 2019
The Calgary Stampede has year-round facilities, western events and more.
