There's nothing we miss more about summer than all the wild and delicious Calgary Stampede foods. But while the actual event might be cancelled this year, their delicious snacks are coming back. This July, they're bringing their most famous eats drive-thru style.
Between Friday, July 3 to Sunday, July 12, the Calgary Stampede and all their wonderful foods are making a comeback.
Throughout those ten days, head down to Stampede Park for a taste of the festival with three different events. Lasting all throughout the ten days, a Stampede food truck rally will be taking over the park and parts of Calgary, serving up everything from cotton candy to corn dogs.
Later, from Monday, July 6 to Tuesday, July 7, they're holding a drive-thru just for mini donuts.
And finally, on Wednesday, July 8, the 2020 Stampede will have a free pancake drive-thru. You'll have to sign up in advance to get your free breakfast and spots are limited, so keep an eye out for when registration starts.
The Stampede is famous for its drool-worthy and super creative foods. After all, where else in the world can you get butterbeer flavoured ice cream, funnel cake pizza, deep-fried chocolate swirl cheesecake, and even more all in one spot?
A spokesperson for the Calgary Stampede said they'll have creative and delicious foods like Dr. Pepper pulled pork poutine, Nova Scotia lobster rolls, and blooming onion rings.
In order to keep safe during COVID-19, the fair's also asking people to only pull up to the drive-thru in their cars.
"Bicycle, scooter, walk-up and alternative transportation modes will not be permitted," they wrote.
Plus, they also put a ban on tailgating, gathering, or parking in Stampede park due to mass-gathering guidelines.
So if you're missing the fair this year and aching to reach for that cowboy hat, this foodie paradise might just scratch that Stampede itch.
