Overview
More
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.

If you are planning your holidays, plan for stampede in Calgary. A fun spend day or two with bull fighting, Chuck wagon races, fire works and various other performances including the hypnotic show and entertainment for children not to be missed at all.

World class event. Lots is basic Carney but the stuff that's not sets it above all else. International flare blended with a country western flair like no other place in the world.

Stampede start on 6th July 2018. So it is a good opportunity to visit such a famous outdoor festival. Check up online for details and do your booking especially for Rodeo Horse competition and Chuck wagon race.
