The Guest Bands Committee creates exceptional experiences for bands and the Stampede guest by providing musical performance opportunities for local ensembles as well as non-local ensembles where opportunities arise.

Specific Activities

  • Recruit marching bands from the Calgary area to attend the annual Calgary Stampede.

  • Provide the bands attending the Calgary Stampede with multiple performance opportunities, including those on Stampede Park, in community events throughout the city, and at the Calgary Stampede Parade.

  • Provide each band with transportation to and from Calgary Stampede organized events, and provide refreshments at their performances.

  • Coordinate and execute all details relating to the Showbands Live Production in the Scotiabank Saddledome during the Calgary Stampede.
