Stampede Behind-the-Scenes Tour: #1



The Calgary Stampede is such a 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 3, 2020

Today would have been the first day of the Calgary Stampede 2020 so we are bringing you a virtual behind-the-scenes tour of some of our favourite Stampede-related objects. We have so much Stampede content that this tour needs to be split into two parts.

Stampede Behind-the-Scenes-Tour Part 1

Today’s tour includes a sign for the 1909 Provincial Exhibition, which was held five years before the first official Stampede in 1912. We’ll also examine Guy Weaddick’s belt buckles, some special hand beaded western shirts, well-worn boots that belonged to the first Indigenous Stampede Queen, 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 and 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.
