The Stampede Roundup will be getting a new home this year after struggling with weather delays and cancellations in previous years.
Last year’s Oxford Stomp was cancelled due to heavy rain and lightning making the Fort Calgary grounds unsafe for public occupancy.

This year’s Stampede Roundup will be held at Shaw Millennium Park due to its infrastructure, central location, LRT access, and greater audience engagement opportunities.
“The safety, security, and event experience is our top priority and we are delighted to have secured a site that offers the site conditions necessary to safely promote a large-scale event in all weather conditions,” Caitlin Boyle, Executive Producer of The Stampede Roundup, said in a release.
