There’s nothing quite like a day at the Stampede, but all those delicious foods, cold beverages, and exciting games can really put a drain on the ol’ bank account.
…A situation that is only made worse by the initial $18 you need to spend to even get through the gates!
- Coca-Cola IgNITE the Night Stampede will feature a half-km tightrope walk
- Calgary Stampede organizers release 2019 Coca-Cola Stage lineup
- Heartland's Amber Marshall to lead this year's Calgary Stampede parade
Thankfully, The Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth is giving those of us with empty pockets a bit of a break this year, as admission to the Calgary Stamede on Cenovus Family Day will be completely free.
Not only that, but a free pancake breakfast will also be supplied, saving you even more cash that can (and, let’s face it, will) be spent elsewhere throughout the day.
The free admission will be available between 7:30 and 11 am on Sunday, July 7, along with a free pancake breakfast (while flapjacks last, that is).
If you’re busy that day, you can also get into the Stampede for free on Friday, July 5 if you get to the gates between 11 am and 1:30 pm — but expect a line, as it is the opening day of the festivities.
When: Sunday, July 7, 2019
Time: Between 7:30 and 11 am
Where: Stampede Grounds – 1410 Olympic Way SE, Calgary
