From food to music, agriculture to rodeo, the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth is bound to amaze, but one of our favourite places to visit is a haven of creative arts, crafts, and music.

From a comfortable wine garden to musical entertainment and poetry, culinary demonstrations, and original fine art to admire, Western Oasis is a must-see on your Stampede schedule. Located in BMO Centre Halls D & E, this cultural showcase is filled with colourful exhibits reflecting western heritage and values.

It’s your chance to meet artists from throughout North America and purchase original artwork. You can even enjoy non-stop music and entertainment at the Window on the West Stage or swing by the new second location in Weadickville.

The Calgary Stampede runs July 6 to 15, 2018 at the Stampede Grounds (1410 Olympic Way SE) and the Western Oasis is included with admission.
