A Special Thank You To
Our Government Partners

The City of Calgary

The City of Calgary is a long-time 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. As well, City Council approved a commitment to fund one third of the BMO Centre Expansion project.

The Government of Alberta

The Government of Alberta, through Alberta Culture and Tourism, support 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 OH Ranch and Stampede School; entice visitors from around the world to experience iconic events like the 50th Anniversary of the Grandstand Show, our signature rodeo and chuckwagon races, agriculture demonstrations and competitions and First Nations culture presentations; and enable 2,500 volunteers to contribute their time and talent to share community spirit year-round through the city and southern Alberta. As well, $250,000 was specifically directed to enhanced security and safety on Park for the 1.2 million guests during Stampede through the redesign of the main gates and perimeter access points.

And on December 18, 2018, the Province of Alberta announced support for the BMO Centre Expansion project as a one third funding partner.

The Government of Canada

The Government of Canada, through Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s AgriMarketing program, committed $29,540 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 $70,541 and $7,419 to enable additional employment opportunities to support activities year-round and for Stampede 2018.

2018 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.
