The Calgary Stampede is the annual rodeo and festival held each July in Calgary, Alberta. As a 10-day event, it can bring in over a million visitors who want to see the animals, cowboys, stage shows, concerts and other events it's associated with. The Calgary Stampede started in 1886 when its first fair was held by the Calgary and District Agricultural Society, and it has grown into one of the largest events of its kind. The park on which the Stampede was built on expanded to also include an exhibition hall, indoor rodeo facility, and Scotiabank Saddledome, an indoor sporting arena. When you're sitting in Calgary Stampede seats, you'll get to watch professionals compete for prize money in a variety of disciplines.
