Early excitement for the Calgary Stampede!

posted by: Best Western Airport Inn Calgary on: June 20, 2018

Year after year, the Calgary Stampede earns its place as one of the world’s biggest parties. Every July, “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth” brings thousands of people to Calgary for 10 days of BBQ, rodeo, pancake breakfasts, drinking and some of the best concerts you’ll ever see. If you’ve never been, you don’t want to miss out – but if you have been, you know you have to come. It’s that good.

It’s still early in the season and not every show is finalized, but the line-up for the 2018 Stampede is already shaping up to be AMAZING.


Coming to the Saddledome Stage for the Virgin Mobile Stampede Concert Series, it’s Luke Bryan! This multi-platinum singer songwriter has sold over 7 million albums and 27 million singles worldwide, and he’s not slowing down. Bryan writes soulful, heartfelt songs that reflect the lives of working class Americans and Canadian all over. In fact, six songs from his last album Kill The Lights have hit #1 on the charts, so this is your opportunity to see this juggernaut of Country songwriting in his prime. Sway along to “Strip it Down,” and hold your flame up high for “Light it Up.”

Luke performs on Saturday, July 14, and tickets are available now. This show is sure to sell out, so get them now! And remember, all concert tickets include admission to the Stampede!

It’s early yet, but The Stampede is Calgary’s premier event. If you’re thinking of visiting you’ll want to line up your accommodations NOW.
