3 Choices:

The Calgary Stampede offers three types of pancake breakfasts depending on how many people will be at your event:

The Batter Boys of the Promotion committee can serve 50-500 people. The customer provides the food, we provide the cooks, the grills and the western hospitality! In order to invite the Batter Boys, you must also select "Western Welcome/Branding" under "Entertainment and Parades".

The Downtown Attractions Committee cooks for 500-1000 people. This committee brings all the food and supplies and focuses on serving schools and select corporate events. A minimum charge of $5 per person may apply.

The Caravan Committee focuses on events that have a minimum of 1,000 participants. We bring the pancakes, syrup, sausage, juice and of course, the fun! A minimum charge of $5 per person may apply.

Western Welcome, Entertainment and Parades

Entertainment and parades

Get some good ol' fashioned western entertainment and festivities at your event. We have a bunch of activities that different committees put on for events around the city.

Promotion Committee

Welcome your guests with Stampede’s unique brand of western hospitality. Our ‘branding’ is a friendly Stampede ink stamp.
The stage is not available for booking between July 1 and the last day of Stampede. The Stampede mobile stage requires sufficient site access and egress for a tractor/trailer to maneuver. The stage is equipped with a 16-channel sound board, iPod mount and CD player, four main speakers, two monitors, microphones and stands. There can be a cost associated with the stage, such as meals and accommodations if the event is not local.
We offer a range of entertainers including singers, fiddlers and youth talent. A fee is associated with some acts. Our coordinator will work with you and your budget.
Our trained ropers work in concert with the Western Welcome group and playfully lasso arriving guests.
Available for Parades only. A professionally designed parade float. Requires sufficient unload/load parking area for tractor/trailer.
Available for Parades only. This beautifully restored antique wagon is pulled by a team of Belgian quarterhorses. Requires sufficient staging area.
Our trained Master of Ceremonies provides continuity and direction for any kind of event.
If you have an out-of-town guest or two you would like to make Honourary Calgarians, we can provide the ceremony to make it real. You supply the hats.
