It's well known that the Stampede is synonymous with rodeo, cowboys, and a celebration of Western Canadian culture. But besides the rodeo and chuckwagon events, there are also a huge midway, live music shows, and cultural and festival events. The festivities spill across the entire city, so if you're in Calgary for more than a day or two, make sure to check for events off-site too.
