About Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede

Celebrating Heritage & Horses is the focus of the Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede this year. We are celebrating in many ways, from bringing in the Sam Steele Scouts to having equine friends greeting visitors at our Summer Stampede.

We have put quite a bit of elbow grease into it, and are happy to have an incredible poster, some great reads in our Posse Posts in the Medicine Hat News, the first Wednesday of every month and we are even having Clydesdales present at the Stampede.

We don’t want you to miss any of it! We have the same big thrills this year too! The Broncs & Honky Tonks Spring Indoor Pro Rodeo and Tradeshow takes place April 10-12, the Annual Indoor Garage Sale is April 25, the WPCA Chuckwagon Races go thundering down the track June 11-14 and the Horse Show is July 17-19.

The largest show in South-Eastern Alberta, the Annual Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede takes place July 22-25. There are tons of activities, from the many skills of the Queen competition, which kicks off July 6, a favourite local competition, the Stampede Store Decorating and don’t forget the Annual Stampede Parade July 23.

Free entertainment (with gate admission) to the Ranch Horse competition, Visual Arts & Better Living, Stampede Tradeshow, Kiddies day in Pioneer Village, UFA Country in the City, all on the Stampede grounds! Sit and have a cool one in the Wildrose Beer Gardens, enjoy the musical entertainment at our night shows or take in the Pro Rodeo July 22-25, saddle up partner!

Farmers Market runs May 16 – October 3 “make it, bake it, grow it, sell it”…it’s all local, from crafts and baking to jewelry and blankets, there is something for everyone! We have our Annual Christmas Market November 6 & 7.

You won’t want to miss Santa at the Enerplus Olde Tyme Christmas Fair and Market on December 3, hot dogs, hot chocolate, its wholesome family fun! We top it all off with The Beef Pen Show and Cowboy Christmas Tradeshow is December 18 and 19!
