CALGARY STAMPEDE: TRUE GRIT
Immerse yourself in Alberta, the Canadian capital of boot-stomping cowboy culture from 6 to 15 July, 2018 and you will feast on the fun-filled carnival fare that is the world-acclaimed Calgary Stampede. With a prize pool of more than
CA$2 million, the Calgary Stampede is not only the world’s richest tournament-style rodeo but one of the most entertaining venues to ever churn up a little prairie dust. Featuring a host of adrenaline-fuelled action – from bull riding, barrel racing, saddle bronco, bareback riding and steer wrestling to a fabulous line-up of live music performances (previous guests include Grammy Award-winning entertainers; KISS, Dixie Chicks and Nelly Furtado) – the Calgary Stampede also hosts the GMC Rangeland Derby Chuckwagon event and a series of spectacular fireworks displays. But at the end of it all, it is the skill and grit that will woo you. Located in the heart of Calgary, Alberta, just one hour from Banff and the Rocky Mountains, the Calgary Stampede is a highlight on Canada’s summer events calendar.
