The Calgary Stampede is such a huge part of life in Calgary that it has become a part of our civic identity. This year, for the first time in its history, the Calgary Stampede has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
July 10, 2020
As we head into what would have been the final weekend of Stampede 2020, we focused our second Stampede behind-the-scenes tour on some of the Stampede-related clothing and accessories that we have in Glenbow’s collection. The people who created and wore these items were committed to Stampede style.
Stampede Behind-the-Scenes-Tour Part 2
We’ve included several items that belonged to Bill Herron, the man behind the famous Calgary White Hat symbol, a stock saddle that was gifted to Guy Weadick by the Calgary Stampede board and a riding skirt worn by champion trick roper and ‘First Lady’ of the Stampede, Flores LaDue, and much more.

#GlenbowFromHome is Glenbow’s way of continuing to provide a regular infusion of art and culture into your daily lives even while we are closed doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. We know art can provide inspiration, beauty and, most importantly, a sense of connection to the people and world around us. Since we can’t connect in person at the moment, we’re bringing Glenbow right to you in your home — through virtual tours, online collections, educational videos, activity ideas, webinars and more.
