Deals and discounts to save you money at the 2024 Calgary Stampede

Share

If you're hoping to head the Calgary Stampede but want to do it in the most economical way possible, there are plenty of ways to stay penny-wise during your visit.

In an interview with CTV News, Money Mentors CEO Stacy Yanchuk Oleksy said the key to saving money at the Stampede is to pre-plan your transportation to and from the grounds, as well as what food and drinks you'll have while there.

"When you’re feeding a family of four, five or six it gets a lot more expensive very quickly," she said.

She suggests everyone pitch in, bringing their own sustenance.

"Everybody gets a backpack with their own water and some snacks, which can help with blood sugar levels and crankiness in the mornings and afternoon."

Here are some deals and discounts to help you and your family save money during your trip to the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth for summer 2024.
