A century of the Calgary stampede

The Calgary Stampede marks its Centennial in July 2012 and are inviting the world to be greatest together. The Calgary Stampede will showcase Alberta to the world for both visitors and born-and-raised Calgarians alike.

“The focus of the Centennial has always been on the Stampede looking outward to the community, versus looking inward and having our own celebration,” says Laura Babin, the Stampede's Centennial Strategist. “The history is important – looking back and paying tribute – but so is looking forward and seeing what the Stampede looks like in the years ahead.”

The 2012 Centennial Calgary Stampede will build upon its legacy. Not only is the Centennial poised to be a celebration to remember, Stampede Park is positioned to become a world class gathering place — a place Calgarians and visitors will be proud to visit for another 100 years.
