The Green Stampede Experience

Posted on July 7, 2015

Whether you’re on the grounds, or out and about elsewhere in the city here are some tips for greening your Stampede experience:

1. Get your Stampede Essentials: Visit London Drugs right on the grounds for your Stampede essentials such as Tylenol, Sunscreen, Reactive, Band-Aids and more. Click here for a map of their location in Weadickville.

2. Have a green stampede breakfast: On Saturday July 11th Community Natural Foods will be hosting their “Greenest Stampede Breakfast” event. There will be a live band, and a whole foods natural and organic breakfast with real butter and maple syrup!

3. Green food & drink options:  Check out UNA Pizza's Stampizza 2015 and keep an eye out for Village Brewery Beer.

4. Go green on the grounds: Look for waste stations with recycling options. They won’t be at every waste station, but try looking close to food venues.  Don't forget to bring a re-usable water bottle to fill up at the BMO Center.

5. Get there green: Avoid the traffic and parking hassles. Calgary Transit has discounted passes and great options to get you to all things Stampede. Or use the onsite bike valets to keep your two wheels safe while you party it up!

Have an amazing Stampede #YYC!!
