We’ve been mentioning Stamped for so long and it’s great finale is a must go! Arguably the city’s biggest event of the year, the Calgary Stampede is back with 10 days of rodeo events, live musical performances, rides and more. And of course, it wouldn’t be the Stampede if you didn’t indulge in some of their unusual food options — tequila fries, deep fried cheesies and bacon wrapped pork belly on a stick are just a few of the treats worth trying.
