Anyone who’s ever actually attended the annual cowboy extravaganza that is the Calgary Stampede knows that this city knows how to put on one heck of a great party. Apparently this fact has not been overlooked by those at CNN who know where the top party places in the world are. In their recent article, 15 Places to Party Sort of Like a Rock Star, the Calgary Stampede was ranked as the fifth best party in the world alongside such events as Mardi Gras, Burning Man, and a variety of events worldwide.
The annual ten day event draws over a million visitors every year to enjoy the rodeo, concerts, midway, parade, and agricultural competitions, as well as encouraging everyone to embrace their inner cowboy or cowgirl.
The upcoming 2012 Stampede will be an event not to be missed, as we will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of this popular celebration of the Wild West. For anyone who’s considering attending the Stampede in 2012, tickets can now be purchased for the rodeo and evening shows. Tickets will go on sale for concert events closer to the event.
