Beat the heat at The Beach

Calgary – New this year to the Calgary Stampede, July 6 to 15, The Beach will be a cool way to beat the heat. When it gets too hot out on the tarmac, escape to The Beach in BMO Centre to chill off. Take off your cowboy boots, slip into a suit and test your balance on the Flow Rider surf simulator.



“This may be the closest some Calgarians and Stampede visitors get to the beach this year,” says Kyle Corner, Programming Entertainment coordinator. “The Beach will be a nice break from the sun. It will be a chance to lounge at a beach of imported sand or try surfing with the Flow Rider surf simulator.”


Enjoy a refreshing tropical drink while being entertained by professional Flow Rider surfers whose tricks will astound you. Captivating 15 minute pro shows will run daily at 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 5 p.m., and 7 p.m. Additional Pro Shows will run at 10 a.m. on July 8, 10 and 11 and at 9 p.m. on July 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, and 15.


Stroll the island shops or join in on the adventure and try riding the waves yourself. If you forget to bring your bathing suit, options will be available for purchase.
