If you’re worried that you won’t be able to find something to eat at the Calgary Stampede due to dietary restrictions or food preferences, have no fear!  There are a variety of items on the Stampede Midway that can accommodate various food sensitivities and other dietary restrictions. There really is something for everyone, including several gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options.

Below is just a sample of some of the options that our Midway food vendors offer that can fit restricted diets. Just keep in mind that our vendors and the Calgary Stampede can not guarantee against cross-contact contamination of allergens, so if in doubt, double-check with the food vendor first before placing your order and make sure you take whatever precautions you need to protect yourself if needed. We want everyone to have an enjoyable (and safe!) Stampede.
