Things to do at the Calgary Stampede: July 7

Jul 7 2022, 4:14 pm

The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth officially gets going on July 8, but we get a sneak peek on Thursday, when events around the city start.

Tents are opening and concerts are starting to pop up across the city with tons of country music to check out plus a reality show star turned DJ is headlining a major tent show downtown.

There is a little something for everyone and Stampede hasn’t even officially started yet!

On the Grounds

Admission to the Grounds is $11 from 5 pm to midnight!
