Calgary’s beloved Stampede runs from July 3rd to July 12th/2015. Among all the excitement of the top of the line Rodeo, Chuck wagon Races, and the Grandstand Show, the Calgary Stampede also offers constant midway action, and a variety of daily shows and attractions that are free with your admission to the park. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore the “Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth”.

  1. **** Get into the spirit and try the unique “Stampede” food including:
  • Mini Donut Popsicle’s
  • Deep fried Oreo’s
  • Dragon Dog’s
  • Lobster Corn Dog’s
  • Red Velvet Chicken Strips

This list could go on forever, but what an adventure! Break out of your shell and try some once in a lifetime out-of-the-box food. A little advice from an experienced stampeder eater is to go back and forth between sweet and salty, that way your stomach can handle all the midway can throw at it.

2. **** Make an appearance at a FREE Stampede breakfast at a location near you:

  • Eau Claire YMCA – July 8th/2015 7AM-9AM
  • Sun RidgeNissan Breakfast – July 9th/2015 830AM-11AM

Calgary hosts Stampede breakfasts all over the city that are free of charge to encourage people to come out, mingle, and get into the spirit of Stampede. Enjoy fresh pancakes, bacon, sausage and fruit courtesy of the Calgary Stampede. Live music is played and often locations have a kid’s corner with lots of fun activities for your children including balloons, face painting, and pony rides.

3. **** Take a walk along Steven Avenue and see all the restaurants and shops dressed to the nines and listen to live music for a fun filled afternoon

  • Metropolitan Grill
  • Earls
  • Trib Steakhouse
  • Home Tasting Room
  • The Libertine Public House

This is just a scratch on the surface of the excellent restaurants and pubs waiting with open arms to welcome you for whatever you may be in the mood for. Whether it is boys night, girl’s night, or family night. Whatever it is you’re looking for, you’ve found it here in Calgary!

Put on a hat, buckle up those boots and come on down to Calgary to catch as many Stampede events as you can handle!

We had a lovely stay and enjoyed our room at Regency during our conference, the room was very clean, parking was great and the front desk was excellent. We even got a chance to use the exercise room! -Janet B.
