2014 Parade Marshal

The Calgary Stampede is thrilled to announce that Canadian legend, iconic actor, active philanthropist and passionate horseman William Shatner will led the 2014 Calgary Stampede Parade as Grand Marshal. In addition, we were proud to have Calgary based speed skaters Gilmore Junio and Denny Morrison as honorary Marshals in recognition of their unique story of Olympic camaraderie earlier this year at Sochi.


Calgary Stampede President Bob Thompson has an interesting call with this year's Parade Marshals.
