Every July, the Calgary Stampede distils more than a century of western heritage into ten unforgettable action-packed days of music, food, excitement, and the very best of western hospitality. The whole party kicks off with a colourful street parade and ends with a huge Grandstand show featuring singing, dancing and plenty of fireworks. In between, you'll get to watch expert rodeo riders, bucking broncos, barrel racing and, championship chuck wagon racing. The whole city joins in the spirit of the stampede, from pancake breakfasts to plenty of cowboy hats. This is one festival not to be missed!
