Create Your Own Undercover Stampede Story

The Calgary Stampede has something for everyone, from the biggest star on the planet to a group of people looking to experience The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth. 

The 2017 Calgary Stampede returns July 7 - 16 for another year of entertainment and action. You can create your own Stampede memories, especially by checking out the spots that make this story so epic.  

Calgary Stampede

Canada's only party to take over an entire city, the Calgary Stampede features one of the most famous rodeos in the world, Chuckwagon races every night, extreme sports shows, the Indian Village, and is Canada's largest music festival 

Smithbilt Hats 

The producer of Calgary's iconic white hat, Smithbilt Hats has been around almost as long as the Calgary Stampede! Take a look at their shop, take a tour of their factory in Inglewood (one of Calgary's hottest neighbourhoods), or have a hat custom made for your own Calgary adventures! 

The Calgary Tower

One of Canada's great icons, it's not actually a beacon to broadcast Katy Perry hits to aliens as suggested in the video above (that's all tabloid lies!), but the Calgary Tower is a must-see attraction in the city. Check out the glass floor that overlooks one of the city's busiest avenues, and SKY 360 - a revolving restaurant providing panaromic views of the city skyline, prairies, and Rocky Mountains within a 45 minute rotation. 

Scotiabank Saddledome

Calgary’s largest live entertainment venue offers an action packed series of events all year long. Take in concerts from chart topping musicians, world class sporting events, or get to the center of the action with the Calgary Stampede. Home to the Calgary Flames, Calgary Roughnecks, and Calgary Hitmen, the Scotiabank Saddledome is a mecca for entertainment in the city.
