Stampede Park is opening its doors and getting ready to welcome Calgarians and visitors from around the world July 5-14, 2024.

Getting to Stampede Park

Public Transit

With 24-hour CTrain service, extended hours on many bus routes and two Express Stampede bus routes, transit is a great way to get to Stampede Park. You can take the Red Line to Erlton Stampede Station or Victoria Park Stampede Station, which will bring you right to the action.

Quick tip: Use Erlton Station for the fastest route to GMC Stadium, Nashville North, the Coca-Cola Stage and the Dog Bowl presented by Haribo. Victoria Park Stampede Station will drop you right near the newly expanded BMO Centre that hosts Immersive Disney Animation, The Market and Stage of Wonders, Western Oasis and Wine Garden, Fleurs de Villes and the Stampede Cellar Champion Wine Experience. Victoria Park Stampede Station is also the best entrance to head onto the Midway for fun and food for all ages.

All major intersections in the area have reopened. To improve ease-of-access and traffic flow, several one-way detours will be in place along 5 St SE, 14 Ave SE and Stampede Trail to facilitate drop-off.

Quick tip: Use the Culture + Entertainment District Stampede 2024 Access Map for traffic flow and drop-off locations.

Navigating Around Stampede Park

The 2024 Stampede Midway has been thoughtfully planned with plenty of room to roam and major attractions spread out across Stampede Park, with mainly new experiences.

Which Entrance should I use?

What's in the BMO Centre

The Stampede Cellar Champions Wine Experience and Fleurs de Villes are best accessed through the BMO Centre doors on Stampede Trail or the sets of doors in the Plaza.

Where can I escape the heat or rain

If you need to beat the heat or rest your feet, there is more seating, more shade and more air-conditioned spaces. From the air-conditioned Range Food Hall on the lower level of The Big Four Building and the Nutrien Western Event Centre, to the Community Stage in the newly expanded BMO Centre, find snacks, shade and seats in more places.
