5 Tips to Green Up Your Stampede Experience

Posted on July 8, 2016

Whether you’re on the grounds, or out and about elsewhere in #yyc, 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. Satisfy your stampede tooth: Community Natural Foods has your recipes covered so you can still have mini donuts, lemonade & more while eating healthy & local!

3. Green food & drink options:  Keep an eye out for local food venders (such as UNA) to grab sustainable grub on the grounds and it’s always a safe bet with 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 (there’s even 24 hour service during the stampede). Or use the onsite bike valets, located at the Erlton, Olympic & ENMAX Park entries from opening until 10:30pm.

If you’re wondering what other environmental initiatives are going on at the stampede grounds during the main event, or all year long, click here.

Have an amazing Stampede #YYC!!
