Things you should know

Dress the Part

During the Stampede, Calgary gets an extreme denim makeover. Business suits take a back seat to blue jeans, belt buckles get huge, and neckties go on summer holiday. Even royalty embrace cowboy hats, boots and jeans.

Casual and relaxed are the order of the day. If you wish to go full cowboy, Stampede Park has a large selection of western clothing in official Calgary Stampede Stores. Home décor items, giftware, and souvenirs are also available. SEE DETAILS


Travellers' cheques and credit cards are accepted at most commercial establishments, banks and currency exchange offices. During the 10 days of Stampede, the Park will host more than a dozen automated tellar machines (ATMs), which accept one or more of the following networks: Interac, Cirrus or Plus. Banks and most retail areas also offer ATMs. US Dollars are generally accepted on Park with the approriate exchange rate applied. For foreign exchange rates please visit  the BMO website.


July weather in Calgary is generally pleasant. Average daily highs hover around the 23C (76F) during the day. Weather can be quite unpredictable, however, and it’s not uncommon for afternoon storms, showers, even hail (yes hail!) to occur. We recommend you bring sunscreen, a hat and light jacket for the unexpected.

Calgary Transit

Calgary’s buses and CTrain are quick and convenient ways to see the city. The CTrain is free in the downtown core and operates 24 hours during the 10 days of Stampede.
