The Calgary Stampede takes place every year in July in Calgary and is a 10 day rodeo, carnival and festival. Because of the pandemic, the 2020 edition had to be cancelled for the first time ever in over 100 years. I have gone every year lately and last wrote about my 2018 experience here.
With vaccination rates of eligible residents meeting 70%, on July 1st, our province will lift almost all covid restrictions. That means The Calgary Stampede could proceed and actually happen for 2021. The plan was to have pre-purchased entry tickets, reduced capacity and modified events. The chuckwagon races were cancelled due to late notice of the Stampede even taking place.
They did not have the Stampede super pass this year which is a ticket that gives you access to the grounds all 10 days. They did however, offer free entry admission on certain days to welcome the city back and I definitely took advantage of that and visited the event 3 days. Even though it was a bit different this year, I still did have a blast and will document on what’s different.
