The Calgary Stampede is a not-for-profit community organization that preserves and celebrates our western heritage, cultures and community spirit. Led by over 2,300 passionate volunteers, our year-round events, programs and initiatives invest in youth, support agricultural programs, celebrate western culture and make a lasting economic impact in our city.
The CS brand has been a well-known community symbol for over a century. While it stands for Calgary Stampede, it has also come to symbolize Community Spirit and the belief that We’re Greatest Together.
Our core values of western hospitality, integrity, pride of place and commitment to the community are brought to life throughout the year as our gathering place hosts, educates, and entertains a global audience.
Year-Round Economic Impact
Each year, Stampede Park hosts over 1,200 business, tourism, sporting, hospitality and community events and welcomes more than two million guests. These year-round events create thousands of jobs and contribute more than $400M to the local economy.
