DESCRIPTION:

The Calgary Stampede is the world's largest annual rodeo, drawing over 1 million people annually and nicknamed "The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth."
The event's roots date back to 1886 when the Calgary and District Agricultural Society held its first fair. Beginning in 1912, American promoter Guy Weadick organized a rodeo and festival called The Stampede. When he returned in 1919 following World War I, he organized the Victory Stampede in honor of soldiers returning from the war.
The modern version of the Calgary Stampede began in 1923 when it merged with the Calgary Industrial Exhibition to create the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede. The 10-day event includes:
Competitions including bull riding
Barrel racing
Steer wrestling
Tie-down roping
Winners receive significant prize money, and the ultimate winner receives the coveted Calgary Stampede Championship buckle, one of the highest awards on the rodeo circuit.
In addition to the rodeo, the Calgary Stampede includes a large parade, midway rides and games, concerts, agricultural competitions, chuckwagon races, First Nations exhibitions, and various stage shows. An attendee highlight is the Stampede breakfasts held in neighborhoods throughout the city with free food and entertainment.

PLEASE NOTE:
Treat all televised and venue-specific events (sporting, concerts, trade shows, etc.) as estimated. Several factors can cause an event to move dates at the last minute, including weather, strikes, natural disasters, political upheaval, conflicting programming, pandemics, and current events. Because of this, always verify the event with the promotor before committing resources. LEEP often estimates dates based on the previous year's schedules, as the final dates are unknown until a few months, weeks, or days before the event. If the date is known to be estimated, you will see an (est) following the date in the title.
