Youth



The Young Canadians

The Young Canadians have been captivating audiences at the Grandstand Show for more than 50 years with their energetic dance and vocal performances. Education and performance training in partnership with the Grandstand Show Production team begins in April and intensifies as the annual Calgary Stampede approaches.



Marching Bands

A popular tradition, marching bands are active daily throughout the Park and in Calgary. The Calgary Stampede Showband is a creative tour de force, performing and acting as Calgary’s musical ambassadors to the world.

A Band of Outriders is a 32-piece ensemble playing everything from pop to western to celebrated soundtracks. Watch for their performances on the Park and prepare to be blown away.

Visiting bands bring local, national and international flair to Stampede Park. Stay up to date with the Calgary Stampede Showband on Facebook.
