Unfortunately, it only runs for 10 days every July, but, soon there will be a 30,000-square-foot space where you can relive the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth no matter the month.

Slated to open next year, the Sam Centre will have 2 galleries, a multi-sensory experience, restaurants and a workshop that will take visitors on a journey through the Stampede’s rich history.

Located on the Youth Campus at Stampede Park next to the Rundle Ruins, the site will give visitors a taste of the rodeo and midway come sun, rain or snow.

From saddles and chutes to the parade and concerts, guests will be at the centre of it all – without having to navigate the crowds, wait in lines or beat the heat.
