Stampede 2020 Dates and FAQs


COVID-19 FAQs

On account of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chief Medical Officer of Health of Alberta has banned all gatherings of more than 15 people for an indefinite period of time and the City of Calgary has declared a state of local emergency. These steps, as well as our continuing concern for the health and well-being of our community, means we are unable to host the 2020 edition of the Calgary Stampede.

There are intrinsic ties with both the Western Fair circuit and North American Fair circuit, particularly with the midway. Fairs across North America are assessing the impacts of COVID-19 and bans on mass gatherings in their regions.

 

This does not mean the end of Stampede Spirit in our city this year. We’re shifting our focus to fall, winter and spring events at Stampede Park, as well as planning for Stampede 2021. We’re also looking for new ways to bring our western hospitality to the community and enhance community spirit for all Calgarians as we navigate through this difficult time. Keep your hats on!

The Stampede is a year-round gathering place for our community and we will continue to evaluate potential opportunities throughout the coming months recognizing the importance of these events to other businesses and organizations in our community.

 

In regards to Stampede-time events specifically, the ongoing ban on large public events means we are unable to host the 2020 edition of the Calgary Stampede.

We’re currently shifting our focus to fall, winter and spring events at Stampede Park, as well as planning for Stampede 2021. We’re also looking for new ways to bring our western hospitality to the community and enhance community spirit for all Calgarians as we navigate through this difficult time. Keep your hats on.

With the restrictions of mass gatherings as a result of COVID-19, all events scheduled to take place at Stampede Park are either cancelled or postponed until further notice and all facilities are closed to the public. We are committed to moving forward with prudence and in coordination with Calgary Emergency Management Agency (CEMA) and Alberta Health Services (AHS).

Calgary Stampede Lotteries

There will not be a Calgary Stampede Lottery this year. This was a very difficult decision for us, knowing that each time someone purchases a ticket they are supporting dozens of charities and outreach programs in our community.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing ban on mass gatherings in our community, we are not able to hold the annual Stampede. Unfortunately, the circumstances surrounding that also prevent us from being able to hold the lottery.

Construction has now been suspended on the Dream Home and will resume in the spring of 2021. It’s a beautiful Homes by Avi project and we’re excited to showcase the completely finished home at next year’s Stampede.

All of the proceeds from the Stampede Lotteries are invested back into the community and we recognize the loss of this program in 2020 will have significant impact, especially during this difficult time. We are committed to the long-term sustainability of the lotteries program and the important partnerships and relationships that make it possible.
