Calgary – At the Calgary Stampede we ride side by side - rain or shine. As a community celebration, we want to provide a little incentive and thank you to those who enjoy the Stampede.

Guests are invited come down today to have some “$5 fun.” It will be $5 per person (Adults, Seniors and Children) to enter Stampede Park between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. tonight.

“The hundreds of thousands of guests who have joined us already this Stampede are having fun -  our experience ratings are trending higher than last year,” says Bill Gray, President and Chairman of the Board, Calgary Stampede. “Even if we can’t make the sun come out, we can make the fun come out!”

All of the great free entertainment that you’ve come to expect from the Stampede will be in full force. There are so many things our guests can see and do for just $5. Bell Adrenaline Ranch, Dog Bowl, Indian Village, International Pavilion, Coca Cola Stage, Western Event Competitions, Agriculture exhibits and much more! We hope you can join us!
