FLUOR ROPE SQUARE 2017 - July 8 and 10-15, 2017

Do you want to have fun? Let’s start Stampede Downtown! 

The Calgary Stampede Downtown Attractions Committee (DTA) wants all Stampede visitors to have a hand clappin’, toe appin’ and belly bustin’ good time!

Come join us downtown at Fluor Rope Square in Olympic Plaza and along Stephen Avenue. The friendly and knowledgable Downtown Attractions volunteers at our information booths are happy to assist you and answer any questions, so that you can get into the Stampede spirit!

At Fluor Rope Square, every day starts with a bacon pancake served hot off a chuckwagon or smokie. We follow up with great daily free activities including live entertainment, square dancing, clowns, Old Time horse drawn rig rides and the Indian Parade.
