Experience the excitement of the Wild West with a trip to the annual Calgary Stampede, called the "Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth." Begun in 1912, the Stampede is held annually in July, and a wide variety of talent is on display every day during the festival. From chuck wagon races to musical entertainment, there is something for everyone. Stroll the Midway for a look at classic Western art and interesting international exhibits or travel back in time on a walk through an authentic Indian Village and recreated frontier town.
Trips that include tickets to the Calgary Stampede usually visit other western Canada cities and attractions as well, such as Vancouver and Jasper National Park.
