Despite uncertainties around whether or not the Calgary Stampede will be able to put on the “Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth” this year, the Stampede Lotteries are back and better than ever in 2021.
The Stampede Lotteries have always been a big part of the July event, and after the pandemic threw a wrench in their plans last year, the Lotteries have returned with more than 100 prizes valued at over $2.2 million.
“After being forced to put our plans on hold in 2020, we were determined to make the 2021 Calgary Stampede Lotteries greater than ever,” Jason Azmier, Chair, Calgary Stampede Lotteries committee, said in a news release.
According to the news release, to celebrate 70 years of supporting local charities, this year’s Calgary Stampede Lotteries include the most valuable prizes ever offered.
The two-storey, 2,490 square foot Rotary Dream Home by Homes by Avi has three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and comes with a bonus $100,000 cash.
