  • (1888PressRelease) June 30, 2010 - It's going to tough, rough and loud when the Calgary Stampede comes to town from 9th to 18th July 2010. The annual ten-day event, that is also billed as 'The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth', offers a variety of activities for the whole family which include concerts, agricultural competitions, stage shows, chuckwagon racing and the world's largest rodeo. The western-based festival attracts thousands of visitors from other regions in Canada, the United States as well as international audiences. Calgary hotels would expect to do well in terms of occupancy rates as visitors flock to the festival.

    The Calgary Stampede aims not only to entertain but more importantly, to promote and preserve the western heritage through exciting events that are becoming more and more difficult to find. Aside from the western-based activities, the Calgary Stampede also provides a venue for the local agricultural community to promote their produce. With its roots stretching from 1886 when the first fair was held, the Calgary Stampede became an annual event since 1923 when it merged together with the Calgary Industrial Exhibition. One of the main attraction is the over USD$2 million in cash prizes for the rodeo' events, making it one of the richest in the world and continues to attract the very best competitors.

    Lee Lai Huat, CEO of, and professed fan of western movies, remarked, "The Calgary Stampede certainly sounds like a whole load of fun with people walking around in cowboy attires and western outfits lending a totally authentic ambience to the festival. One of the best things to do is to go to the Grandstand Show with its acrobatics act, exciting motocross performances, comedy shows and many more entertaining activities." He went on further to say, "For ten days in July, the Calgary Stampede brings much excitement and a rare opportunity to go back in time with the whole family.
