To/from Stampede Park during the Calgary Stampede

Hi all & local experts

We'll be in Calgary during the Stampede and will attend a Rodeo and a Night Show. We stay at the Holiday Inn Express downtown on 1020 8 Ave SW. Should we Uber, Ctrain or drive to the Stampede? We probably don't want to drive due to the trouble of parking. We're thinking of taking Uber to get drop off closer to the Stampede and save time but would like to know your suggestions. We are a family of four so cost of Uber probably comparable to the Ctrain and it appears that overall time is better with Uber. Thx much in advance.

Any travel advise if you are staying at the Marriott Airport for one night and want to take in the Rodeo? also should we purchase our tickets beforehand?

We are staying at the Sandman hotel city centre, which would be the best way to get to the Stampede? As we are two pensioners least amount of walking would help.

C-train...your hotel is literally right beside it.

To everyone looking at taking the C-train - Calgary Transit offers a discounted day pass ($6.50/d) during Stampede. You can buy the passes right at the kiosks on the train stations.

Uber just worked out great for me to Stampede Park.

And walking from the Delta down Macleod Trail and back was completely straightforward and looked much easier and more comfortable than those poor souls who arrived, or were trying to depart, on the C train as we strolled past.

You may find a longer wait for Uber during stampede

The C-train would be better

Temperatures are averaging in the 30's so far...C-train is air-conditioned, or at least walk along the river....much nicer. Uber or cab, you will pay!
