On behalf of the Rotary Club of Calgary and the Event Sponsors we want to extend our support to those who have been affected by the flood in Calgary and surrounding areas. We are saddened to see the damage that has been done to our City but are proud to be a part of a community who has banded together to stay strong and ensure that everyone is safe.
In light of the flooding, we believe that Stampede will be a time to bring everyone together to celebrate a 100 year tradition which has brought so much joy to our City. We are extremely fortunate that Fort Calgary was largely untouched by the floods and it is our intention to deliver the biggest and best Stampede Roundup yet!
We are very proud to announce today that The Rotary Club of Calgary will commit a significant portion of Stampede Roundup event proceeds to a Flood Recovery Fund which will help support the most vulnerable Calgarians impacted by the flood. A committee is being formed within Rotary to work with the Calgary Foundation and the Red Cross to ensure the funds do not duplicate existing efforts.
Please note that we have been able to reopen our office and tickets can be picked up between 9AM - 4PM Monday thru Friday until July 9th. We encourage everyone who hasn't picked up their tickets to do so before the event. If you are unable to pick them up in advance, your tickets will be available at the Will Call booth located at the main entrance of the event.
We look forward to seeing everyone on July 10th for a Stampede celebration like no other with Def Leppard, Cheap Trick & Sloan!Sincerely, The Stampede Roundup Team
With 100 million records sold worldwide and two prestigious Diamond Awards to their credit, Def Leppard--Joe Elliott (vocals), Vivian Campbell (guitar), Phil Collen (guitar), Rick "Sav" Savage (bass) and Rick Allen (drums) —continues to be one of the most important forces in rock music.
Over the course of their career, the band has produced a series of classic groundbreaking albums that set the sound for generations of music fans and artists alike. The group's spectacular live shows, filled with powerful melodic rock anthems, have become synonymous with their name. For the past thirty years the band's concerts have become must-see events and have quickly made them an institution in the touring industry, as they continue to sell out arenas worldwide.
Cheap Trick may be one of the most covered bands of all time.
Since the 70s they've been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in
a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable. With timeless classics such
as "I Want You to Want Me," "Surrender," and "The Flame," Cheap Trick are a
musical institution. Anyone familiar with Comedy Central's The Colbert Report
will note that Cheap Trick wrote and performed the theme song.
Originally from Rockford, Illinois, Cheap Trick is made up of original members Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), Robin Zander (lead vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums) and Tom Petersson (bass). Cheap Trick has performed over 5,000 shows, sold 20 million records, achieved 40 gold and platinum recording awards and been part of 29 movie soundtracks, including Top Gun.
Their most current release, "The Latest" , has garnered glowing reviews worldwide and continues Cheap Trick's reign as power-pop progenitors as they continue their legacy of over 35 years in the music industry.
Canadian rockers Sloan have been delivering hit after hit for two decades, making them a household name across the country.
Formed in 1991, this quartet from Halifax, Nova Scotia became well-known with singles such as "The Rest of My Life", "The Other Man" and "If it Feels Good Do It." Throughout their 20 year tenure, Sloan have released 10 studio albums, two EPs, a live album, a "best of" collection and no less than thirty singles.
Additionally, the band has been recognized with a Juno Award and several East Coast music awards.
Sloan is known for having four distinct song-writing voices and for maintaining original members throughout their career.
Band members include Chris Murphy (bass and vocals), Patrick Pentland (guitar and vocals), Jay Ferguson (guitar and vocals) and Andrew Scott (drums and vocals) who form a cohesive collective and continue to challenge themselves with each record.
The Stampede Roundup is hosted at Fort Calgary on the original parade square where the community would hold its great celebrations in times past.View in Google Maps.

The Stampede Roundup is a radical departure from the typical corporate Stampede hosting function. The event incorporates an outdoor music festival format into Calgary's largest private Stampede charity fundraiser headlining top artists from around the world. The 2013 Stampede Roundup on Wednesday, July 10th at Fort Calgary marks the 18th Anniversary of the event.
Over the years, the Stampede Roundup has grown to become much more than just a 'party'. We are proud to continue our long-standing philanthropic association with the Rotary Club of Calgary. At last year's event, we were honored to present a cheque in the amount of $225,000! The Rotary Club of Calgary is a registered charity that invests 100% of the proceeds from this event back into the community (both locally and internationally) through a variety of charitable contributions. These projects include a multi-year commitment to funding clean water technology in third world countries, helping local troubled teens and enhancing the quality of life for Calgarians by providing funds for the development of 138 kms of pathways and specialty parks circling the city!
