Overview

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.

Calgary's Stampede seems larger than the Edmonton Exibition, and although we did not even get into the actual cowboy part the grounds were larger by far ,and it rained most of the time so crowds were small, but we had a good time.

We went on family day, so it was completely manic. The grounds were absolutely swarming with people and difficult to navigate around. There were plenty of free 'shows' and the afternoon rodeo performance was great. I wouldn't return but it had to be experienced.

Hi, I'm so sorry it's taken so long to get back to you, I've never been asked a question before. It might be too late now but I got my ticket on the day which I think would work out cheaper but there was only two of us. Enjoy
