A Special Thank You To
Our Government Partners

The City of Calgary

The City of Calgary is a longtime partner of the Calgary Stampede. Along with providing our 100-year lease and support for our credit facilities, collaboration furthers outreach into the community to enhance initiatives from year-round civic events and celebrations to our annual 10-day celebration. Various programs and initiatives at Stampede Park and across the city engage citizens year-round, contributing to the cultural, social and economic well-being of the greater community.

The Government of Alberta

The Government of Alberta, through Alberta Culture and Tourism, supports a number of Stampede programs and facilities through an operating grant of $7.674 million. This support helped: create opportunities for youth to learn about agriculture and sustainability through programs like Aggie Days and Journey 2050; attract guests from around the globe to share in our unique western heritage and culture during Stampede at our signature rodeo and chuckwagon races, agriculture exhibits and competitions, and First Nations culture presentations; and enable 2,300 volunteers to contribute their time and talent via 47 committees to enhance and showcase our community spirit. As well, $250,000 was specifically directed in support of converting the Big Four to a year-round concert and entertainment venue for the community.

The Government of Canada

The Government of Canada, through Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s AgriMarketing program, committed $28,879 to enhance our international agriculture initiatives, including business-to-business engagement, publication and distribution of Profile magazine, and showcasing Canadian producers and practices. The Canada Alberta Job Grant (CAJG) and Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) programs contributed $44,728 and $19,405 to enable additional employment opportunities to support activities year-round and for Stampede 2018.

2017 Partners

The sponsors of the Calgary Stampede are passionate about our community. It is thanks to their vision and support that we are able to deliver world-class experiences during Stampede and year-round.
