Ever met a Miniature Donkey? These little Jennets and Jacks have a ton of personality, and their easy-going, gentle nature makes them great pets. Top breeders in the industry will be on hand from Friday, July 6 through Monday, July 9 to answer questions while you get to know their four-legged companions. The Miniature Donkey Showcase is located in the Agriculture Barns; demonstrations will take place in the Northern Lights Arena.


Event Dates and Location

Event Dates: July 5–8, 2019
Location: Demonstrations in Northern Lights Arena & Country Critters Stage / Ag building

Throughout the four days of this year’s Calgary Stampede you will witness several demonstrations where exhibitors will put their miniature donkeys through challenging trail courses, including bridges, pylons, jumps and ropes. Following each demonstration you will have the opportunity to meet the minis and learn why they are one of the most popular animals on Park! It is truly amazing what these animals can do. There will be returning favorites and many new donkeys on display this year.

Our exhibitors welcome everyone to come to our location and ask any questions. At the end of our demonstrations we will be once again opening the gates at the end of each presentation to let everyone come in and pet a donkey...or have a photo taken with one! Leave with a smile on your face and a renewed appreciation for these sweet little donkeys.

The Miniature Donkey Showcase is in the Ag Building on July 5 - 8, 2019. 

View Miniature Donkey Demonstrations in the Northern Lights Arena on Friday July 5 to Sunday July 7 at 5:00pm, and on Monday July 8 at 12:00pm.
