The self-proclaimed Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth attracts more than a million visitors over 10 days of events and attractions, kicking off with an opening parade featuring dozens of marching bands, more than 150 floats, marching bands, dancers, politicians, and business leaders.

Most travelers plan to spend at least two days at Calgary Stampede to allow time to fully explore the park. Don’t miss the nightly Rangeland Derby, where teams of horses and drivers race to a finish line, followed by a fireworks finale. General admission tickets grant access to the rides, games, and food stalls of Stampede Park, but rodeo events and concerts require separate tickets.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Bring sunscreen, a hat, and a light jacket, as weather can be unpredictable in Calgary in July.
  • Stampede Park is big; be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes or well broken-in cowboy boots.
  • Most Stampede vendors accept major credit cards, and the park has more than a dozen ATMs scattered throughout; US dollars are generally accepted.
  • The park and all its public buildings are accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.

How to Get There

Parking is limited at Stampede Park. To get there via public transportation, take the CTrain from Erlton or Victoria Park Station in Calgary.

When to Get There

The Calgary Stampede is held in July. Rodeo events take place during the afternoon hours each day, with Showdown Sunday offering the richest payout to winners. Evening entertainment includes wagon races, variety shows, and fireworks, as well as live music. Check the event calendar to see which musicians are performing.

First Nations at Elbow River Camp

During a visit to Calgary Stampede, stop by the First Nations at Elbow River Camp to learn about the Siksika, Piikani, Kainai, Tsuut’ina, and Stoney Nakoda First Nations. The area features 26 tepees, local artisans selling handmade jewelry and folk art, traditional dancing and singing, and food stalls offering bannock, an unleavened flat bread, and Saskatoon berry jam.
