The Calgary Stampede

Posted by on Wednesday, July 6, 2016

The Calgary Stampede is an annual rodeo, exhibition and festival held every July in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

This year the Calgary Stampede runs from July 8th to the 17th.

The Calgary and District Agricultural Society was formed in 1884 to promote the town and encourage farmers and ranchers from eastern Canada to move west. The society held its first fair two years later, attracting a quarter of the town's 2,000 residents.

The ten-day event, bills itself as "The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth".

You can check out the Calgary weather page for the weather conditions throughout the Stampede.
