While most people associate cowboys and cowgirls with the wild west of the United States, the fact is there are plenty of Canadian cowboys and cowgirls as well. This is especially true in Calgary, which just happens to be the site of the Calgary Stampede, widely considered to be one of the world’s most exciting and competitive rodeos. Billed as The Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth, this rodeo extravaganza is always one event that rodeo fans across Canada and the world look forward to each year. Offering more than $2 million in prize money, the 10 days of action from July 6-15 will feature hundreds of the world’s top rodeo competitors, along with in-depth media coverage from the Cowboy Lifestyle Network, Ak-Chin Indian Community and Earnhardt Auto Centers Road Team.

And along with the non-stop action of the rodeo events, there will be plenty of other activities that will appeal to cowboys and cowgirls of all ages. These will include a parade and plenty of live music for fans to enjoy, which will include performances from the Stampede Showband, as well as various local and national artists performing on the Coca-Cola Stage and the Nashville North stage. And for those cowboys and cowgirls who are just waiting for their talents to be discovered, there will also be a Talent Search competition, where the next great singing star is sure to be found.
Started in 1912, the Calgary Stampede is one of the world’s oldest and most beloved rodeos.
