Calgary Stampede announcement: 2 late nights fireworks displays for 2020 Stampede Season

June 30th, 2020

Greetings Ramsay Residents,

Stampede is canceled for 2020, Right?

Yes, the Calgary Stampede is cancelled for 2020, but Covid can’t dampen Calgary’s Stampede Spirit!  Calgary Stampede will be hosting a spectacular covid-friendly fireworks event for the entire city July and July 12. The fireworks will be MUCH Higher that the traditional grandstand show fireworks, to facilitate city residents to see them from far-away vantage points. (see News Story here) 

This means that Covid-rules still apply. City residents are not permitted on Stampede Park, and encouraged not to venture to inner-city communities to view fireworks.

Each year, Ramsay Community, Calgary Stampede, Calgary Parking Authority, Calgary Roads,  Ward 9 and a variety of other community stakeholders plan build a Stampede Parking Plan for the community of Ramsay.  This year is no exception. Plans are already underway to manage any potential traffic that may find its way into Ramsay for the 2020 fireworks.

We wish everyone in Ramsay a safe and Happy Canada Day,  and enjoy our COVID-Respectful VIP viewing of the Stampede fireworks 11 pm on July 3 and 12th.
