Why: it should be on your bucket list: Well as organizers say, the Calgary Stampede is recog- nized worldwide as, “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth.” However, the Stampede is much more than a ten-day long celebration with midway rides and bucking broncos, the Calgary Stampede is a gathering place that hosts, educates, and entertains visitors from around the world during this annual celebration of the region’s western heritage that has been going on since 1912. Now, what that all means for you, the visitor, is massive rodeos, Chuckwagon racing, a nightly variety show, and concerts. Aside from that, visitors are welcome to explore the festival’s midway, with a host of entertainment and activi- ties to lose yourself in. Because in early July, this is where the energy of Calgary can be found and why it is on our list and should be on yours this and every year.
