HEAD TO THE GROUNDS FOR THE STAMPEDE
One week down, one more to go! After last year’s cancellation, the midway, the food, the music, and the rodeo are back and despite things looking a little bit different, some of you could not be happier. This week mask up and hit the Stampede grounds in celebration of the city’s resilient spirit!

Where: 1410 Olympic Way SE
FLOAT THE BOW
It’s going to be a long hot summer! This week, grab your pals, a dingy, and some snacks then hit Calgary’s winding river. Kick back and enjoy the warmth on your face and the water on your toes on an obligatory YYC adventure.
BINGE NETFLIX’S JULY RELEASES
From documentaries comedies and originals, Netflix will be delivering hours of entertainment to get us through a long summer that might almost be too hot. This week those who would prefer to stay indoors can binge their way through Calgary’s heatwave with a ton of new releases!
COOL OFF IN ONE OF CALGARY’S OUTDOOR POOLS
With temperatures well into the 20s, city-slickers are going to need somewhere to cool off and we just don’t think we’re all going to fit comfortably into the Bow. This week, why not consider checking out one of the many spray parks, outdoor or wading outdoor pools throughout Calgary!
GRAB A DRINK AT THE STAMPEDE CAESAR ROUNDUP
Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker and we don’t have a whole lot of time left to enjoy the Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth. This week either before or after you hit the grounds check out one of Calgary’s best bars for a unique sip as part of the city’s 10-day Stampede Caesar Roundup – a celebration of the most wonderful time of year!
When: Friday, July 9th – 18th

One of the most popular ways to get out and about in the city? Running!
