Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede

Sport & Leisure

For over 130 years, the Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede has been a community gathering place!

The Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede is a family-friendly, three-day event that originated in 1887. It’s a celebration of western culture and heritage with exciting rodeos, a pop-up amusement park, and a range of ticket-entry and free entertainment. Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede continues to bring urban and rural communities together near the end of July, for thousands of people to enjoy their summer days and be entertained for as long as their hearts desire.

Methanex Kiddies Day 

A day for the kids is planned, where they can enjoy hotdogs, popsicles, face painting, and bouncy castles. Games for different age groups are planned, like watermelon eating contests and scavenger hunts. This day is dedicated to bringing all the fun to your children during the Stampede.

Night Shows 

The night shows are held at the Grandstand on the Stampede Grounds. Well-known bands perform their most popular and loved tunes, while community members and visitors live in the moment and dance to the live music underneath the stars. Continue making more memories to look back on into the evening after you’ve spent the day out in the sunshine. 

The Rodeo 

This is the heart of the Stampede. You’ll watch athletes participate in chuck wagons, bareback riding, steer wrestling, tie-down roping, saddle bronc riding, team roping, barrel racing, bull riding, steer roping, and more. This action packed rodeo will have your eyes wide open waiting for the next move.

More Rodeo!

There are several venue spaces on the Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede land, one of which hosts rodeos from April to July. The Broncs & Honky Tonks Rodeo features Canadian Professional Rodeo and Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association contestants. It’s a popular event where people enjoy watching all rodeo-related activities. Be sure to check the Stampede’s events calendar for upcoming rodeo events.
