Calgary – Hundreds of 4-H members will gather at Stampede Park for the Calgary Stampede’s annual 4-H on Parade, presented by Cervus Equipment, Friday, May 31 - Sunday, June 2, 2019. For more than 60 years, the event has been showcasing the hard work of 4-H members while celebrating youth involvement in agriculture and their passion for learning new skills.
470 members aged from 9-20 to will participate in what is Western Canada’s largest 4-H gathering. Known as the crowning event of the year with 39 clubs from Calgary and area in attendance, projects include horses, steers, dogs, sheep, artwork, welding, archery and more.
Capping off the weekend, members will give back to the community through the charity sheep and steer sale on Sunday, June 2. Proceeds from the animals will go to support local organizations including STARS, Make-A-Wish and the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation. The life skills silent auction will also take place throughout the weekend, taking bids from Friday until Sunday.
Open to the public with complementary admission, guests can catch all the fun in the Nutrien Western Event Centre, the Agriculture Barn and the Victoria Pavilion on Stampede Park.
