Four-time GRAMMY Award winner, Keith Urban will rock the Stampede on 12th July, with tickets still available through http://cs.calgarystampede.com/tickets/packages.html

The Calgary Stampede draws thousands of rodeo fans to Alberta every year to watch the best cowboys and cowgirls present a world-class showcase of saddle bronc riding, calf roping and steer wrestling, all vying to qualify for Wildcard Saturday and Sunday Showdown, with $2 million dollars up for grabs in prize money, making it the richest outdoor rodeo in the world.

The action continues as the sun sets, with the thundering power of the GMC Rangeland Derby followed by the Evening Show, a spectacle of music, dancing and singing.

And it’s not all cowboy hats and rodeos. The Calgary Stampede is famous for its outrageous food offerings, combining nostalgic childhood favourites with a carnival twist, such as whiskey-infused fudge, deep-fried wagon wheels, taco pizza and cotton-candy cupcakes.

Along with endless edible delights, visitors will experience the daily thrill of rodeos, First Nations performances and the nightly spectacle of the one-of-a-kind TransAlta Grandstand Show.

The Calgary Stampede continues to lead the way in the world of rodeo as a volunteer-supported, not-for-profit community organisation that promotes western heritage and values. The world-renowned Stampede also raises money for youth and agriculture programs in Calgary and southern Alberta.
