Overview
More
Every July, millions of people come to Calgary's Stampede Park to take part in one of the world's largest rodeos and other popular activities such as chuckwagon racing and agricultural shows. The event's origins date back to 1912, when American Guy Weadick, a successful trick roper, got support to host an event called "Stampede" to celebrate the "disappearing" Old West. Since then, the event has grown drastically and has evolved into a celebration of the Old West, while reflecting the modern, multicultural aspects of the city.

Yes, I know that the rodeo is significant in cost, however this is the only event of this scale, in Canada, thus for once a year, one can swing the cost. All of the rodeo events are superb and while the clown MC (Rodeo Clown,...More
