The Stampede Parade is an iconic part of Calgary’s cultural identity. Since 1912, the Stampede Parade has served as the official kickoff of The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth. Each year, the Stampede Parade entertains our community with a showcase of colourful floats, majestic horses and the high-energy marching bands.
The iconic Calgary Stampede Parade returns on Friday, July 8, to kick off The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth and will be led by legendary actor, producer, director and musician Kevin Costner as this year’s Parade Marshal.
It’s not just a parade marching down a street; it is a march through tradition, history and Calgary’s culture.
