Calgary – Sunday, July 10 is Suncor Family Day at The Calgary Stampede. Head down to Stampede Park between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. for free park admission and a complementary pancake breakfast for the first 20,000 visitors, courtesy of Suncor. Enjoy a special Family Day performance on the Grandstand Stage featuring The Calgary Police Service Pipe Band, Coshquin School of Irish Dance, singer & songwriter Cole Malone and more!

The Calgary Stampede has once again committed to reducing the environmental impact of Suncor Family Day. Twenty thousand environmentally friendly and recyclable utensils, napkins and plates will be used and volunteers will be on hand to help guests sort recycling, compost, and food waste. Last year more than 580 kgs of waste was diverted from local landfills by this initiative.

At 9 a.m. Stampede Market, Buckaroos, Western Oasis, Agrium Western Event Centre Market, and the International Pavilion will open for guests to continue the fun. Share your Suncor Family Day memories with us by tweeting @suncorenergy and @CalgaryStampede using #SUFamily.
