The Calgary Stampede's core purpose is to preserve and celebrate western heritage, culture, and community spirit while contributing to the quality of life by promoting volunteerism, presenting a year-round slate of events, investing in youth and agricultural programs, and developing a unique experience for the world to enjoy.
The Calgary Stampede is so much more than just midway rides, bucking broncos, and a ten day long community celebration. The Stampede is a gathering place – hosting, educating, and entertaining a global audience. In true western fashion, integrity is at the heart of all our relationships..
The first Calgary Stampede was hosted in 1912. Over the course of over one hundred years the Calgary Stampede has grown into the modern Stampede we know today.
For more than a century the CS brand has been a well-known symbol in our community. It stands for Calgary Stampede, but it’s also come to symbolize our Community Spirit, a belief that We’re Greatest Together.
