If you're wondering how to entertain the kids at the Stampede, fear not! The Stampede provides plenty of free entertainment, so you don't have to spend all the time at the Midway.
The info below is for 2013 Stampede, and will be updated for 2014 in May when the information has been provided by the Calgary Stampede.

Meet Cookie Monster and Abby Cadabby - Their favourite friends from Sesame Street will be on hand to meet the children at the Calgary Stampede, July 9 and 10 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Outside, there are several rides for the kids along the midway. There are lots of rides in the main Midway that are suitable for older children. For the younger
kids, there's a Kids Midway north of the Stampede Corral (towards Olympic Way & Downtown) with rides appropriate for smaller children.
To reduce the cost of the Midway, there are Family Packs of ride tickets at a (somewhat) discounted price. If you can plan ahead, your best bet is discounted tickets from Safeway, usually available in June.
Wednesday of Stampede is Kids Day with free early (before 9 am) admission to the grounds.
