This week features Rihanna as she, alongside special guests B.o.B. and J. Cole., perform at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

Details on that and more here:

  • Rihanna:  Featuring all new costumes and stage designs, R&B recording artist Rihanna will be gracing Calgary with an all new production on the Canadian leg of her Loud Tour, alongside special guests B.o.B. and J. Cole. Tuesday, June 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the Scotiabank Saddledome.  Tickets for the concert are available through Ticketmaster.
  • Stampede Volunteer Showdown:  Every year, a couple of weeks before Stampede, all 2,000+ Calgary Stampede volunteers get together for one big bash.  If you’re a Stampede volunteer, this year Showdown will be held in the BMO Centre, Halls D & E.  Dinner and saloon open at 6 p.m.  You’ll be able to pick up your accreditation package at this event or at the People Centre starting June 23.  Please note that because this year’s accreditation is a Photo I.D. pass, volunteers, life members and alumni must pick up their accreditation packages in person.  If you did not submit a head/shoulders photo for accreditation, this will be your final chance to do so.  This event is for Stampede volunteers only.
