The Calgary Stampede is almost here and this year, there’s going to be more than tents, pancake breakfasts, and wild Midway food items. There are also going to be more Calgary Stampede drag brunches than ever before.

Drag brunches are an absolute blast, with live performances, boozy drinks, and plates of breakfast, if you’ve never been to one then now is the chance.
