The city of Calgary is transformed for ten days into town celebrating the cowboy culture. Visitors will enjoy the atmosphere and friendly attitude of the locals, at Canada’s largest tourist event. The famous Rodeo portion of the Calgary Stampede takes place daily at 1:30 pm. This tournament-style rodeo focuses on six major events: Bareback, Bull Riding, Barrel Racing, Saddle Bronc, Steer Wrestling and Tie-Down Roping. Nightly is the world famous Chuckwagon event, featuring 36 drivers and 216 horses competing for over $1.15 million in prize money.
