The 2019 Calgary Stampede finally here and with it comes plenty of interesting things to do, great food to eat, exciting shows to attend… and the ever-widening hole in your wallet as a casualty of all that fun.
No one wants to cut their Stampede enjoyment short because they’ve run out of funds, and, luckily, there are a few ways to save some cash while attending the Stampede this year.

If you didn’t feel like dropping $40 on a SuperPass, you’ve still got an opportunity to save on admission, as attendees can get into the Stampede for just $2 on Tuesday, July 9.
The Toonie admission price is to celebrate McDonald’s Community Day, which features a Grey Cup rally at the Grandstand Courtyard at noon.
The one catch is that the cheap admission is only being offered before 2 pm (easy to remember though: $2, 2 pm), so you can definitely expect some long lines in the morning.
Regular admission to the Calgary Stampede is $18 for adults and $9 for children and seniors, so that’s a saving of $16 or $7, respectively.
That’s $16 that can go towards mini doughnuts, burgers, hotdogs, you name it!
