Join the Calgary Stampede’s Public Art and Historical committees on Saturday, May 5 at 1 p.m. for a two hour guided walk part of Jane’s Walk, a global festival of free neighbourhood walking tours inspired to get people together to explore, talk about and celebrate their neighbourhoods.

The tour begins at Cowboys Casino and will visit sculptures and murals, each showcasing a unique time in the Stampede’s rich history, sharing the stories of community, western hospitality and pride of place.

The tour will conclude with a Q&A session with internationally recognized local artist Jeff De Boer, and art gallery owner Jarvis Hall at the site of Rainbow Trout.  During the Q&A, De Boer and Hall will discuss Rainbow Trout, the Stampede’s newest piece of public art, as well as public art in general - a relevant hot topic in Calgary.

Wear your cowboy hat to the Stampede’s Jane’s Walk for a chance to win a prize and don’t forget to bring your camera and use the hashtag #CSArtWalk2018.
