It’s time to dust off your boots, grab your cowboy hat, and gear up for the 2018 Calgary Stampede!

Our partnership with the Calgary Stampede spans more than seven decades. As the Stampede’s longest consecutive sponsor, we look forward to getting involved and helping host visitors from around the world.

From the moment guests walk through the gate, we’re there to ensure they enjoy a fun, safe and memorable experience. Learn more about how we support the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth:  

ATCO Lost Kids Program

Since 1993, we’ve helped reunite lost children with their parents. The ATCO Lost Kids program sets up booths at every Stampede Park entrance and provides children with bright wristbands that their parents can write their contact information on. Parents are also given an information card with the phone number and directions to the Lost Kids Centre in the event their family becomes separated.​




ATCO Structures & Logistics’ Modular Buildings

As the Stampede’s provider of modular buildings, we support a variety of essential operational functions for the event. From providing accommodations for rodeo participants, musical performers and VIPs, to supplying washroom units, offices and the Lost Kids Centre, we help the Stampede run smoothly.  



ATCO Energy Education Mobile 

Treat your kids to some educational entertainment with our Energy Education Mobile. Developed in consultation with Alberta teachers, this 40-foot classroom on wheels provides a unique and interactive learning experience that features fun and engaging activities that allow visitors to increase their energy IQ.



ATCO Championship Chuckwagon Trophy 

Since 1940, we’ve sponsored and presented the Championship Chuckwagon trophy to the winning chuckwagon driver and his team of outriders on the final evening of Stampede. Every five years, an artist is commissioned to produce a bronze action sculpture and plaque that reflects the excitement of the sport.




We hope you all have a boot stompin’ and safe Stampede!
