Every July, millions of people come to Calgary's Stampede Park to take part in one of the world's largest rodeos and other popular activities such as chuckwagon racing and agricultural shows. The event's origins date back to 1912, when American Guy Weadick, a successful trick roper, got support to host an event called "Stampede" to celebrate the "disappearing" Old West. Since then, the event has grown drastically and has evolved into a celebration of the Old West, while reflecting the modern, multicultural aspects of the city.

As a Calgarian, this summer adventure is always pleasing. The excitement is always thriving. It’s a great way to experience the old west and still see the newest adventures to be had in midway rides and food.

Truly one of the greatest Outdoor shows in North America. If you are into Rodeos, Cowboys or World Class Entertainers this is the place to be in the second week in July. We have not missed the event in 35 years.
