The Calgary Stampede is one of Canada’s most famous events and one of the most authentic and memorable western experiences you could pack into a single vacation. Embrace the rodeo culture and become a cowboy or cowgirl during the annual 10-day, city-wide festival, which is host to the world’s top rodeo, thrilling chuckwagon races, live music, an Indian village, agriculture and so much more.
In 2012, the Calgary Stampede turned 100 years old. A century ago, the romance of the West was experienced across North America and Europe by millions of people who were enthralled by Wild West shows that celebrated western heritage and culture. The first Stampede in 1912 captured the energy, optimism and spirit of that era, and for 100 years it has continued to bring people together for an incredible cultural event.
Six major events make up the daily rodeo – bareback, bull riding, barrel racing, saddle bronc, steer wrestling and tie-down roping are the backbone of the Stampede Rodeo. Add in Novice Bareback, Novice Saddle Bronc, Junior Steer Riding and Wild Pony Racing for the youngsters and you've got the best rodeo in the world. In 2006, The Calgary Stampede Rodeo roped new ground by introducing the new tournament-style rodeo and this year (2012), for the first time ever, prize money will top the $2 million mark. First, the contestants are divided into two pools. It’s a new rodeo every day as these talented contestants compete for $60,000 in prize money - $10,000 in each event.
In addition to the rodeo and/or evening show (choose your option below), your ticket includes entrance to Stampede Park, where you’ll find rides and games, themed areas, food and drink stands, and the Skyride that takes you from one side of the park to the other.
