Agree or Disagree: The Calgary Stampede is good value for it’s money


You may or may not be aware but this, but the Calgary Stampede begins this weekend.

The reality is that the Calgary Stampede is the identity of Calgary.  It’s the biggest event of the year and the City invests in it. Physically, mentally, and emotionally.

People around the world will travel around the world to come to the Stampede. And it will attract well over one million people. It’s an economic boon for the City of Calgary.

However, I’m getting a sense there is some people tired of the Stampede. They are tired of the crowds and the behaviour of some. But, most of all, they are tired of the prices of…..everything. 

The moment you decide to go to Stampede, the reality is you can spend over $100-$200. Easily. That’s a lot to ask for many.

 

Do you think the Calgary Stampede is good value for it’s money?

  1. You can get your admission price worth it if you plan. Bring your own snacks/food. Look ahead at the events that are included in your admission.
    But as for everything else, its a money pit. Food and water(hate the price for water) is over priced.
    Crowds is also my issue. When its hot out and trying to go inside for a little relief is like being at the watering hole in the savanna dessert.
    I was actually thinking of tweeting today that you know you are Calgarian when you either dont have a desire to go or know how to avoid downtown like the plague during stampede.
