Employment and Volunteering
The Calgary Stampede is a volunteer-supported, not-for-profit community organization that preserves and celebrates our western heritage, cultures and community spirit. The Calgary Stampede is most famous for its 10-day festival in July, but Stampede Park is a busy place all year.
The Stampede hosts hundreds of third-party events throughout the year in BMO Centre, participates in and hosts community events all over Calgary, produces and hosts year-round agriculture and western events and has an active Foundation that makes year-round youth performing arts and education programs possible.
We rely on 1,200 year-round employees to make this all happen. Our unique employment opportunities include positions in Consumer Sales, Marketing & Sponsorship, Community Engagement & Communications, Agriculture & Western Events, Park & Facility Services, Business Services, Sales & Event Management, Food & Beverage and Stampede Programming. And, yes, that big event in July requires a lot of planning. During Stampede time the Stampede hires 3,500 employees for the annual event.
When you work for the Calgary Stampede you are part of family of employees, volunteers and sponsors committed to the community. The Stampede is more than a 10-day celebration-- it is world-class year-round gathering place dedicated to youth education, agricultural programs, connecting rural and urban communities and creating exceptional experiences. We are a group of passionate, curious, team-oriented folks who love what we do.
