From July 9 to 13, the Calgary Stampede is offering free admission to Stampede Park for frontline workers.
“For 16 months you’ve been our frontline,” reads the Calgary Stampede’s website. “From delivering our packages, to stocking the shelves, keeping us healthy and safe to teaching us in-person and virtually (and back again).”
“You showed us that we are truly Greatest Together,” the Stampede continues. “So at this year’s Calgary Stampede, we’re putting frontline, at the front of the line.”

According to the Calgary Stampede website, the admission offer applies to “all frontline and essential workers.”

Event organizers note that if an individual’s industry or occupation isn’t included in the list but they provided an essential or frontline service to the community, they can still take advantage of this offer.
No validation or proof of identification is required to redeem the free admission.
