The Stampede Parade presented by Suncor 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.

It's not just a parade marching down a street; it is a march through tradition, history and Calgary’s culture.

Applications for the 2023 Calgary Stampede Parade are now closed. Take a look at the Guidelines & Best Practices, and the Parade Entries Workshop Presentation from November 2022 for when you apply for next year!
