The first Calgary Stampede ever


WORLD'S FIRST
CALGARY STAMPEDE

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

When was the world's first Calgary Stampede?

When the Canadian Pacific Railway arrived in Calgary, Calgarians thought is was a reason to celebrate and in 1886 they did just that, holding the first Calgary Exhibition.

In 1912 an American by the name of Guy Weadick came to Calgary and suggested a rodeo event and Wild West show, Calgary obliged and the Calgary Stampede was born.

In 1923 the Calgary Exhibition and the Calgary Stampede were combined and they have been held in the second week of every July since.
