The Calgary Stampede has existed as an iconic symbol of volunteerism, community spirit and western values for more than 100 years. We invite our partners to be part of this community by offering the opportunity to connect their brand to a unique and passionate audience. Calgary Stampede sponsors gain access to host clients in premium venues, engage their employees and increase brand loyalty and sales through the alignment of mutual objectives.

Government Partners

The Calgary Stampede is a not-for-profit community organization that preserves and celebrates our western heritage, cultures and community spirit. With the vision to create a world-class, year-round gathering place for the community, the organization reinvests all revenue into a broad range of programs, our facilities and the talent of over 3,000 volunteers and 1,200 employees who together create our success. The support of our public partners is vital to the continued development of Stampede Park for the benefit of Albertans and visitors from around the world. Our shared vision will enable us to be valued contributors to our community both today and well into the next century.

The City of Calgary

The City of Calgary is a long-time partner of the Calgary Stampede. Along with providing our 100-year lease and support for our credit facilities, collaboration enables outreach throughout the year in the community to enhance and further civic activities. Various initiatives at Stampede Park and elsewhere engage citizens and guests, contributing to the cultural, social, and economic well-being of the greater community.

The City is providing one-third of the funding for the expansion of the BMO Centre, which progressed on budget with construction toward becoming the largest convention facility in Western Canada.

The Government of Alberta

The Government of Alberta, through Alberta Arts, Culture and Status of Women, supported several Stampede programs and facilities through an operating grant agreement of $6.055 million. These funds provided opportunities for youth to learn about agriculture sustainability, western heritage, and develop performing arts skills, along with over a million guests from around the world to experience the annual celebration with iconic events including 100 years of chuckwagon races and pancakes, agriculture competitions and First Nations cultural presentations in Elbow River Camp. Further, the investment enabled 3,000 volunteers to contribute their time and talent toward building community year-round, with $250,000 specifically directed to repairing the exterior of Rotary House and the electrical and structural needs within the Agriculture Building, to maintain these public venue assets and ensure the safety of guests.

The Province is a one-third funding partner of the BMO Centre Expansion Project. Final construction continued on schedule, with the building envelop completed in Fall, interior finishings taking shape, and steady progress toward the June 2024 opening of the new tier-one conference facility.

The Government of Canada

The Government of Canada provided COVID-19 pandemic support through a one-time contribution from the Major Festivals and Events Support Initiative announced in June 2022. The Calgary Stampede appreciates this support, which helped to sustain employment opportunities and to deliver a full presentation of the annual July celebration in 2023. The Canada Alberta Job Grant (CAJG) contribution of $91,667 enabled employment training opportunities through the year.

The contribution by Infrastructure Canada of one-third matching funds to the $500 million-dollar expansion of the BMO Centre supported exterior work completion, to enable the complete focus on interior construction and final finishing to move forward and new space to be open in time for the 2024 Stampede.
