Calgary Stampede 2012

Ziptrek was proud to partner with Stampede organizers to bring a thrilling 950 foot zipline to the main fairgrounds during the centennial event in 2012. The Calgary Stampede is a celebration of western values and heritage and boasts the richest outdoor rodeo in the world, thrilling chuckwagon races, a spectacular theatrical presentation known as the Evening Grandstand Show and world-class agricultural attractions and competitions. Reaching its centennial year the Calgary Stampede was celebrating 100 years of the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth!
