Calgary is officially in the thick of Stampede 2022 and it can be easy to get caught up in all of the action. Heck, some of you may not have noticed it yet, but your bank account could probably use a little break. Luckily, this doesn’t mean you have to hang up your cowboy hat!

Today, July 12th and tomorrow Wednesday, July 13th – the Calgary Stampede will be offering free admission, but there are a few things that you need to know before kicking up some dust.

We hope you’re ready, Calgary, because there’s about to be a mad dash to the grounds. While admission (and doughnuts) will be FREE all day long for seniors, the general public will also be able to get in on complimentary access.

Hit the gates anytime between 10 am and 2 pm and enjoy the greatest outdoor show on Earth without having to spend a dime.


Thinking of taking your kids to the grounds? Tomorrow is THE day to do it!

In addition to enjoying a FREE pancake breakfast and variety show in the GMC Stadium Courtyard between 8 am and 10 am, kids 12 and under will also be able to enter the grounds for FREE all-day long.

If you don’t have kids – we’d recommend getting up and out early, because FREE admission to the Calgary Stampede will be granted to those who arrive BEFORE 10 am.

Got it? Good! Now get out there and enjoy yourselves. But do it fast – because these windows will come and go before you know it.

Happy Stampeding!
