Calgary stampede

Calgary, Alberta hosts the Calgary Stampede, ten-day rodeo and agricultural exhibition held the next week of July every year that bills itself “the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth”. 

The very first Stampede was held in 1912 and attracted almost 40. 000 visitors its first year, far greater than anyone expected. Attendance in the 2006 Stampede would be a record-breaking 1. 26 million people. Stampede organizers recommend that anyone who wishes to attend the event make reservations well beforehand. 

The Stampede is famous to its chuck-wagon race, harking back to the races cowhands would have in celebration at the conclusion of long trail rides. Other rodeo events include pro and novice bareback competitions, bull riding, saddle bronco riding, both pro and novice, barrel racing, wild pony racing, and many roping events. 

Not even nightfall slows through Stampede. Once the sun sets, visitors benefit from the nightly Grandstand Show, a pageant that features Canadian performers and changes annually. Each evening, stages all over Calgary illuminate with performances from country music stars, comedians, dancers, and much more. 

The Stampede’s Midway keeps growing, too, and in fact now averages over 30 adult rides and 20 kids-only rides every year. Midway guests can test their skill in one among 20 or even more games. Once they get hungry, attendees will find refreshment at perhaps one of the a large number of food and beverage vendors—and that is simply upon the Midway ! 

Agricultural events happen to be section of the Stampede because it merged using the Calgary (Agricultural ) Exhibition in 1932. Aggie Days is really a family-friendly look into how milk gets from cow to table and wool from sheep to sweater plus other fun activities for youths. 

Perhaps one of the Stampede’s best-known events is that the Caravan Breakfast. Each morning from the Stampede, a gaggle of dedicated volunteers puts out a free breakfast for Stampede attendees, a practice going back over 80 years.
