Prepare to be Amazed: Calgary Stampede to Celebrate Canadas 150th Birthday

Everybody in Canada knows that 2017 is a very special year – it is the country’s 150th birthday, after all - and the good folks at the Calgary Stampede’s famous TransAlta Grandstand Show are no different.


The show is a big hit with Stampede fans every year, featuring elaborate song and dance numbers, pyrotechnics, acrobatics and a spectacular fireworks finale – but this year’s grandstand spectacular promises to be even more special.


This year’s show, Together, is a huge celebration of Canada’s milestone birthday. Hosted by songstress Jann Arden, the show promises exhilarating surprises, magnificent sets and breathtaking performances.


After all, Together is produced by Dave Pierce, the Emmy award-winning producer of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics opening and closing ceremonies – so you can expect to see something truly spectacular!


Pierce has said that Together will be the biggest, most visually spectacular show yet - an extravaganza that’s not to be missed. We can hardly wait!


Talented Canadians such as the Alberta Ballet, The Young Canadians, Calgary’s adult choir Revv52, Inuit throat singers, Cailyn DeGrandpre and Samantha Kigutaq are all coming together in the show with an all-Canadian creative team to celebrate the country’s past, present and future.


You can expect pageantry on an unimaginable scale: breathtaking fire and water effects and a massive musically-accompanied firework finale. What better way is there to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday?


You can catch the show only at the 2017 Calgary Stampede from July 7 to 16. Tickets start at $49 and can be purchased online at
