At the same time, if you are interested to know about Calgary Stampede, read the 2018 Calgary Stampede Annual Report 2018 here.
Last year was one of the best years for us as we met about 12 family friends during Stampede in Stampede Grounds. Usually, we cover 4 to 5 days and only meet a few family friends. So in terms of the number of family friends, we think last year was the best.

We have been to Calgary Stampede for almost the last 6 years. We still however, love to visit every year. Why? Because we never feel that we are back to the same offering. In addition to our usual fun, we find Calgary stampede to be an excellent show and therefore, agree with the slogan of “The Greatest Outdoor Show On the Earth”. Even more, is offered every year in addition to some usual stuff.
