The Calgary Stampede brings with it a host of related events and parties - a nightlife that rivals that of New Orleans during Mardi gras. Be forewarned, however, that there is no sleeping during the Calgary Stampede. Many local businesses host free Stampede pancake breakfasts and bars and nightclubs remain open well into the early morning hours. Calgary is home to some of the biggest, wildest bars in western Canada that accommodate thousands of partying people. The Calgary Stampede nightlife boasts an unrivaled entertainment experience.
Ranchman's Cookhouse and Dance Saloon is famously known as Stampede party headquarters. It features great musical acts and the authentic cowboy "honky-tonk" kind of place where you are likely to rub shoulders with bull riders suckin' back a Budweiser after a tough day of rodeo. The Roadhouse is home to Calgary's urban cowboys, featuring a variety of music to cater to just about everyone. New to the Stampede Party scene this year is the highly anticipated re-opening of Cowboy’s in the New Cowboy’s Casino (formerly known as the Stampede Casino), which mixes the best of a traditional saloon with a new modern feel. Nashville North, located right on the Stampede Grounds, holds thousands of people and features live music and cold beer all day long; and that's just to name a few of the dozens of bars that rage into the night.
