12 bucket list Calgary Stampede pancake breakfasts you can't miss this month

Jul 4 2022, 4:50 pm

Over 50 Calgary Stampede pancake breakfasts take place over the 10-day event, and they all offer something different.

Every year, there are so many pancake breakfasts all over the city. There’s every kind of pancake breakfast, from free family-friendly ones to ticketed ones with a wild party atmosphere.

Plenty of breakfasts also stand out for offering something a little different than the standard pancakes and coffee.

Here are 12 unique breakfasts at this year’s Calgary Stampede you definitely don’t want to miss.

This feels more like a mini-Stampede grounds to us than a pancake breakfast. This free event does have breakfast (including free Starbucks Coffee) but will also feature YYC Princess, mini-golf, Calgary Reptile Parties, Bouncy Castles, and more.

When: July 7 from 8 am to 11 am

Ismaili Muslim Community

When: July 11 from 7:30 am to 10:30 am
Where: 3231 17th Avenue SE, Calgary
