In 2023, we’re celebrating 100 years of thundering hooves and roaring crowds – of heritage, spirit, and excitement. And this July, we invite you to join us in celebrating this once-in-a-lifetime milestone at the Cowboys Rangeland Derby!
The world’s first Chuckwagon Race was staged here at the Calgary Stampede in 1923. A true throwback to the wild west, the event was inspired by the tradition of cowboys breaking camp and racing home. And while some of the rules have since changed, the rush has never left.
Races start nightly at 7:45 p.m. and are followed by the world-famous Bell Grandstand Show.
Evening Show tickets purchased in advance include admission to Stampede Park on the day the ticket is valid for.
