Calgary – While the Calgary Stampede has evolved over the years, the annual celebration continues to be a summer staple in Calgary. Whether you’re reliving your best Stampede memories or making new ones, we want to celebrate with you!

Free admission for grads – July 14-18

As a gathering place for the community, for years the Stampede has been proud to host many significant celebrations including high School graduations. In honour of the high school and post-secondary graduating classes of 2020 and 2021, we invite you to commemorate your accomplishments with your friends and family at the Calgary Stampede! Free admission will be offered to all 2020 & 2021 grads and three guests for the final five days of the 2021 Stampede, July 14-18. This important and exciting time of your life deserves a grand celebration – and there is no better way to celebrate than at The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth.

Purchase online beginning July 14. Walk-ups are welcome, but entry will be based on park capacity.


Throwback Thursday – July 15

Take a trip back in time – 22 years to be exact! Do you remember your Stampede in 99’? Maybe you were checking out the Rodeo, taking a ride on the Zipper or boot scootin’ and line dancin’ to your favourite country tunes. Pull out your high-waisted wranglers and brightly patterned shirts as we kick it back to the 90’s with Throwback Thursday. On July 15, you can Stampede like it’s 1999 with $9 Park admission all day!
