 Saddle up for the Calgary Stampede

This year marks the centennial celebration of the Calgary Stampede, called the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth. Good Sam takes members into the thick of things with an all-inclusive RV excursion, July 3 through 9.

Thrilling crowds for 100 years, Alberta’s signature event features a million dollar rodeo, thundering chuckwagon races, spectacular fireworks and grandstand shows, and the official Stampede Parade with 700 high-stepping horses. Good Sam tour participants see it all with reserved seating, comfortable transportation and six nights of RV camping.

The tour kicks off with a motorcoach trip through the majestic Canadian Rockies to postcard-worthy Bow Falls, Banff and Lake Moraine, plus lunch at legendary Chateau Lake Louise. Back in the city, the tour rolls into Canada Olympic Park and stops for lunch at the Calgary Tower with the world’s highest 360-degree observation deck. Then it’s off to one of the all-time-greatest rodeos as cowboys and cowgirls vie for big money riding bulls and broncos, wrestling steers and racing around wooden barrels.

Good Sam’s team of RV travel professionals will help you make the most of your time in Alberta, from the welcome dinner to the final farewell. So pack your cowboy hat and boots, gas up your rig and join Good Sam for one of the club’s most popular RV adventures. For more information or to sign up, visit
