Calgary Travel Guide

In 1988, Calgary became the first Canadian city to host the Winter Olympic Games and ever since, the world now recognizes Alberta’s largest city as a premium destination for winter sports, ecotourism and outdoor adventure. With a growing population of over 1 million people, Calgary has now become a cosmopolitan Mecca with a rocky mountain backdrop. The economy in Calgary and Alberta is always thriving - one of the fastest growing cities in the country. The oil and gas industry make up the majority of the area’s economy, although other sectors are growing such as the tourism industry. Close to 5 million people currently visit Calgary on an annual basis for its many attractions and festivals such as the Calgary Stampede.

For 10 days in July, the infamous Calgary Stampede offers its distinct chuck wagon races, agricultural competitions, stage shows, midway rides, concerts and pancake breakfasts around the city. The Stampede Parade which occurs on opening day is one of the festival's oldest and largest traditions.
