Yeehaw! From the moment you arrive in Calgary, it's hard not to feel like a part of the action. Calgary is a vibrant, modern city of more than a million residents who embody hospitality, community, and an entrepreneurial spirit. Their rich western heritage, cultural diversity and urban energy make it a unique destination for travellers year round. But during the Calgary Stampede especially, the city kicks into high gear for one of the world's greatest celebrations.
Each year the Calgary Stampede overflows with the sights, sounds, tastes and spirit of century funneled into 10 days of music, food, education, friendship, and community. Whether people come from down the street or have flown from halfway around the world, everyone is welcome at the Stampede for an amazingly unique experience, including the must-see rodeo.
The caliber of the rodeo itself comes down to two things: the skill of the competitors and the quality of the horses, bulls and steers. The Calgary Stampede Rodeo features only the world’s best rodeo athletes and the finest stock with competitors facing off in a furious, action-packed display of skill and grit every afternoon around 1:15 PM.
The two and a half mile parade is also the perfect way to kick off the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, featuring the World Champion Calgary Stampede Showband. A dynamic ribbon of pageantry follows, showcasing beautiful floats, bands, riders, celebrities and cultural performances. This is a truly captivating celebration you don't want to miss out on!
While you’re here, you might also want to visit the site of Ang Lee's film Brokeback Mountain and some of the locations where it was filmed or simple take a leisurely walk downtown through the market and keep your eyes peeled for incredible street art. As part of the ongoing activities, don't forget to check out The Twisted Element Nightclub to see some go-go boys or drag shows!
For those who may wish to extend their Calgary stay, additional nights are available or you can plan a visit out to Banff in the Canadian Rockies. There's also the option to take a Great Gay Drive from Calgary all the way west to Vancouver! Rainbow High Vacations is pleased to help you put together a remarkable trip in and around Calgary based on your needs to make your vacation one you'll be talking about for years to come.
