UPDATE: Hill Access Road Closures start at 8:00 pm Sunday July 12 

Greetings Ramsay Residents,

Calgary Stampede will be hosting a spectacular covid-friendly fireworks event for the entire city July 12. The fireworks will be MUCH Higher than traditional grandstand show fireworks –  to facilitate city residents to see them from far-away vantage points.  Covid-rules still apply. City residents are not permitted on Stampede Park, and encouraged not to venture to inner-city communities to view fireworks. We’re  discouraging gathering, crowds, and asking people not to come to Ramsay.

Each year, Ramsay Community 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 traffic that may find its way into Ramsay for the 2020 fireworks.  Ramsay Community Association, Ward 9 team, Calgary Stampede, Calgary Roads, Calgary Parks, Community Standards (Bylaw), Calgary Parking and City of Calgary Events Teams and other stakeholders continue  working hard to ensure the July 12 event being hosted by the Calgary Stampede are well organized, coordinated, safe and that we are not in violation of social-distancing protocols.

Expect: barricades (temporary barricades, staffed and vehicle secured), enhanced Calgary Police Service and Calgary Parking Authority presence, extra clean-up crews scheduled post-event. Stampede Parking Planning Team has assess July 3 event, and made plan adjustments for the July 12 event.

Hill Residents Hill Access – Residents expecting Guests: Guests must arrive before the road closures go in place (before 8:00 pm).  Only residents will be allowed access after the roads are closed, via the two hill access points for residents:
