4 Things We're Excited About for Stampede Season Here in YYC

Updated: Jun 24

The Calgary Stampede, often referred to as "The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth," is a time-honoured tradition that draws people from all corners of the world to our beautiful city. For ten days each year, Calgary transforms into a hub of excitement, showcasing the best of Western culture, music, food, and entertainment. At Market Mall Dermatology, we hold the Stampede close to our hearts, not only because it's an iconic part of Calgary's identity, but also because it's an opportunity for us to connect with our community in a meaningful way. This year, we're thrilled to share what we're most excited about for the Stampede season. From our exclusive Stampede Special to the thrilling rodeo events, here's what has us buzzing this year.

1. Our Stampede Special: Juvederm Savings

First and foremost, we are excited to announce our exclusive Stampede Special! This year, we're offering $100 off a Juvederm syringe, or surprise savings when you purchase a Juvederm syringe. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to rejuvenate their appearance and restore a youthful glow.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid (HA) based filler, designed to replenish and restore naturally occurring HA in areas where it has been depleted. This treatment is highly effective for enhancing the lips, cheeks, chin, tear troughs, jawline, smile lines, and marionette lines. Whether you're looking to add volume, smooth out wrinkles, or achieve a more contoured look, Juvederm can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Where Can You Treat Dermal Filler?

Juvederm fillers are incredibly versatile and can be used to treat a variety of areas:

  • Lips: Enhance fullness and shape for a more defined pout.

  • Cheeks: Add volume to the cheeks, giving a youthful lift.

  • Chin: Contour and define the chin for a balanced profile.

  • Tear Troughs: Reduce the appearance of under-eye hollows and dark circles.

  • Jawline: Achieve a more sculpted and defined jawline.

  • Smile Lines: Smooth out nasolabial folds for a refreshed look.

  • Marionette Lines: Reduce the lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin.

2. Pancake Breakfasts: A Delicious Tradition

One of the most beloved traditions of the Stampede season is the multitude of pancake breakfasts hosted by businesses and organizations throughout the city. These events bring the community together to enjoy delicious pancakes, and they often feature entertainment, games, and other fun activities. You can see the pancake breakfast calendar here, but we also want to share a couple of pancake breakfasts we're particularly excited about:

First Flip Pancake Breakfast

Kick off the Stampede season with the First Flip Pancake Breakfast on July 4 from 7:30 am to 10:30 am. This event takes place on Stephen Avenue and marks the beginning of the Stampede festivities. It's a fantastic way to start the celebrations with friends, family, and fellow Calgarians.

Puppy Pancake Day

We are especially looking forward to the Puppy Pancake Day on July 7 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at Bon A-Pet-Treat! Pet Store & Bakery, located at #3, 5111 Bowness Rd NW. This event offers complimentary puppy pancakes with toppings, raffle prizes, goodie bags, spin-to-win games, a family photo booth, caricaturist, adopt-a-thon, and in-store sales. It's a wonderful event that supports KCS Animal Rescue and ARTS Senior Animal Rescue, with Bon A-Pet-Treat! matching donations. Bring your furry friends and join them for a day of fun and community spirit!

3. The Rodeo: Heart-Pounding Excitement

The Stampede Rodeo is a highlight of the Stampede season, featuring the world's best competitors and top-notch animals. Every afternoon at 1:30 p.m., cowboys and cowgirls face off in thrilling events that showcase their skill and bravery. The rodeo culminates in Showdown Sunday, where the stakes are high, and the competition is fierce.

Rodeo Events

With six main events spread over ten days, the rodeo offers non-stop action and excitement. Here are some of the key events:

  • Barrel Racing: Watch as cowgirls maneuver their horses around barrels at breakneck speeds.

  • Bull Riding: Witness the sheer strength and determination as riders attempt to stay on bucking bulls.

  • Bareback Riding: See cowboys showcase their skills in one of the most physically demanding events.

With a total prize money of $1.85 million, the Stampede Rodeo is not only a test of skill but also a significant reward for the top performers. It's a must-see event that brings together the best in the world of rodeo.

4. Music and Tents: The Heartbeat of the Stampede

No Stampede experience is complete without the vibrant music and lively tents that host some of the best musical talents. This year, we have our eyes set on a couple of standout performances that are sure to get everyone dancing and singing along.

Gord Bamford at Wildhorse Saloon

On Tuesday, July 9, the Wildhorse Saloon will be hosting Gord Bamford, offering a night of fantastic music, western barbecue, and an unforgettable Stampede party. Located in the heart of downtown, the Wildhorse Saloon is known for its massive patio and energetic atmosphere, making it the perfect spot to celebrate the Stampede.

James Barker Band at The Nashville North Tent

The Nashville North Tent, the original Stampede party tent, will be hosting the James Barker Band on July 11 at 10:00 pm. This 18+ venue has a rich history of hosting incredible acts like Johnny Reid, Eric Church, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. With its lively atmosphere and top-notch performances, the Nashville North Tent is a staple of the Stampede experience.

As the Calgary Stampede approaches, the excitement in the air is palpable. From our exclusive Juvederm savings to the community pancake breakfasts, thrilling rodeo events, and fantastic music performances, there's so much to look forward to. At Market Mall Dermatology, we're proud to be part of this vibrant community and to share in the joy and festivities of the Stampede season. Whether you're a lifelong Calgarian or visiting for the first time, we invite you to join us in celebrating this incredible tradition.
