10 best Calgary Stampede pancake breakfasts you have to hit this year

Jul 8 2022, 6:28 pm

So many Calgary Stampede pancake breakfasts, so little time.

Sure, there are all the recently announced Midway food items, great patios near the grounds to hop onto, and a few awesome barbecues in the evenings, but the pancakes might be our favourite food at The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth.

Every year, there are so many pancake breakfasts all over the city. There’s every different kind of pancake breakfast, from free family-friendly ones to ticketed ones that have a wild party atmosphere.

It’s never too early to get excited about griddle cakes and flapjacks, but you probably want to know which ones you absolutely cannot miss.

Here are our picks for the 10 best Calgary Stampede pancake breakfasts this year.
