In 1912, Calgary established one of Canada’s greatest ongoing traditions, the Calgary Stampede. From coast to coast, the Stampede has become synonymous with Alberta’s largest city which welcomes over one million guests from across the globe during the 10-day festival each July. Since its creation 100 years ago, the Calgary Stampede has become a staple to the Calgary identity and tourism industry.
