This trip is all about the Calgary Stampede, also known as “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth!” From rides to pancakes, horses to light shows, rodeos to stage shows, chuckwagons to displays of Alberta agriculture, and top name acts, the Calgary Stampede has it all. Enjoy exclusive access to some of the best shows, where you’ll be sitting front row-deo. This program can easily be extended with additional shows and/or Stampede features and other Calgary activities. Giddy up!
Upon your arrival at the Calgary airport, you will be transported by private driver to your hotel downtown. Begin exploring the city before dinner at your leisure. If you haven’t already dusted off a hat and invested in some cowboy fashion, now is the time! Accommodations are at the Fairmont Palliser in a Fairmont Room.

Grab on to your reins and get ready for a great ride! The real action begins each day at 1:30 and features Ladies Barrel Racing, Saddle Bronc, Tie Down Roping, Steer Wrestling, Bareback, Bull Riding, Steer Riding, and Wild Pony Racing.

With 17,000 cheering fans, there’s plenty of excitement. Enjoy the evening Grandstand Show, featuring live music, followed by a world-class fireworks display.
