Most importantly, Stampede is not complete without some fancy pancake breakfasts around town.
While we have already put together a list of all the pancake breakfasts during the Calgary Stampede 2018, we have decided that these five breakfasts are the ones that you just can’t pass up this year.
It is time to book your tables for Buckn’ Breakfast, one of the best Stampede parties in town. This year, the organizers will host this event at one of the greatest entertainment venues in Calgary, The Palace Theatre. With the VIP ticket, you can get a free breakfast buffet and six drink tickets. The best part of the event will start at 1 pm when the organizers load everyone onto the buses and head off to the Wildhorse Saloon’s Stampede tent, where you can dance until the sun goes down.

Where: The Palace Theatre — 219 8th Avenue SW
