This event has passed
Please see the up to date event schedule for current events
With the safety of our community top of mind, we have made the decision to cancel this year’s Aggie Days.
As a gathering place for our community, the Stampede is committed to supporting the health and safety of our guests as well as the volunteers and employees who support our community programs.
Although this is disappointing, we are grateful to each of you for the time and effort you have put in to make this event a success and we are looking forward to Aggie Days in 2021.
The Stampede continues to plan for Stampede 2020, while recognizing that the full impact of this issue on our community is unknown. We are committed to operating with prudence and in coordination with Calgary Emergency Management Agency (CEMA) and will react and adapt under its guidance.
AGGIE DAYS SCHOOL DAYS TAKE PLACE APRIL 1-3, 2020

The volunteers of the Calgary Stampede Agriculture Education program dedicate their knowledge and time to produce a fantastic Aggie Days event annually in the Nutrien Western Event Centre on Stampede Park.
Aggie Days is closed to the public during the week, when our program is available as a FREE educational field trip exclusively for students in grades 3 to 6. On the weekend (April 4-5, 2020) Aggie Days is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Agri-food is Canada's leading industry, employing one third of our work force. It is important for students to find out what is happening "out on the farm" and how agriculture impacts our daily lives. The displays and interactive activities, hosted by the Ag Education Committee, industry organizations and volunteers, are designed to help your students learn more about Alberta's agricultural and historical legacy. The educational activities that we have compiled on these pages are useful in helping your children or your classroom learn about agriculture.

Nutrien is back with their "hands-on" Seed Survivor exhibit for children. This interactive display is based on the Alberta science curriculum. If you have seen it, you will know it is a very popular exhibit during Aggie Days! It features multi-media and virtual reality games, an insect video scope, a sunflower seed planting station, a watershed center, talking walls and much more.
Seed Survivor was designed to teach youth that plants need water, light, healthy soil, and nutrients to survive.
