The Calgary Stampede

“The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth”

July 11-12

Attendance at the Calgary Stampede for Summer 2018 = 1.27 million over a 10-day period! Yes, it is the biggest rodeo in the world. 17,000 people pack the grandstand daily for each afternoon rodeo show and another 17,000 for the evening chuck wagon races followed by the grandstand show and fireworks. Not only do the grounds house the grandstand, but a midway with rides and concessions which rival the Ohio State Fair lure old and young alike. Pavilions house dog and horse shows; musical entertainment abounds; and the Indian Village which has been an integral part of the Stampede since its inception in 1912 is vibrant with demonstrations and performances. The Young Canadians, a group of youths ranging in age from 11-18, are featured performers of synchronized routines throughout the grandstand show. The Calgary Grandstand Show is full of glitz and talent, and it rivals many Vegas shows we have seen on the Strip. Cowboy boots and hats abound at this venue!
