Calgary Stampede’s roots are traced back to 1886 when the Calgary District and Agricultural Society held the first Exhibition. Stampede had never been canceled since it became an annual event nearly a century ago.
This year, due to COVID-19, we won’t be able to celebrate Stampede in traditional ways, but we can still keep the Stampede spirit alive!
