It is not unusual for Stampede Park in Calgary to remain occupied throughout the year. With its many spaces, it is perfect for events of different kinds. The Grandstand is perfect for concerts and trade shows, while the Rotary House is ideal for private events like weddings and other intimate functions.
The only thing we were not quite happy with, was we were quite aways from the grounds, so had to take a bus or rail in, but we loved the people and the city and wish we would have had more time to spend there. Our parade seats were great and also the rodeo ones. Our chuckwagon seats were a little far back, but all in all, good. We were not too impressed with the stage show. Thought it would be more of a western theme and not so modern. Loved our time though and appreciate our trip gal, Nelka, who set it all up for us. Many thanks.
We loved the stampede,we saw so much. The first nations village and hoop dancing, chicken dance and warrior dances,fantastic to watch.The Calgary Stampede band were wonderful to watch and hear,they were so talented.The giant robot that roamed the park,the fish and chips from Billingsgate,just like at home,very tasty and delicious,the stampede chuckwagon guys talking about the free breakfast every day and telling interesting stories and making us a sample.The big horses in the ring were so gentle and intelligent.So much more and we never went on a ride,there was just too much else to do and free apart from meals.The marching band competition in the saddledome was so amazing to watch,and of course the superdogs were a lot of fun.I could go on but dont have the time.We will be back again sometime.Yeehaw as they say in Calgary!!
