July 7, 2017
Join old and new friends on Friday, July 7, 2017, beginning at 7:30 a.m. (Parade Prelude), for the official kick-off of The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth: the Calgary Stampede Parade.
Each year the Parade showcases more than 150 western-themed entries, including 30 marching bands, 40 floats, 750 horses and 4,000 people. It's not just a Parade marching down an avenue; it's a march through tradition, history and local Calgary culture. While our western roots are strong, we've also got multi-cultural flair with many people travelling from all over the globe to walk and ride in our Parade.
Folks wake up before the crack of dawn to get their favourite spots on the Parade route. For many families, watching the Parade has become an annual tradition. Why not make it yours too?
