Yahoo! Cultural Access Pass members celebrate Calgary Stampede with free gate passes


This year, hundreds of new Canadian citizens will once again experience The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth! thanks to a generous gift from the Calgary Stampede. This year’s special offer gives 500 Cultural Access Pass (CAP) members a pair of free gate passes to the ten-day celebration of western heritage, culture, and community spirit.
CAP members and their guests will experience the thrilling action of the rodeo, the thunder of the GMC Rangeland Derby, exciting midway rides, nightly fireworks, and live music.

“Calgary Stampede is an important Canadian cultural event,” said Yasmine Mohamed, Manager of the ICC’s Cultural Access Pass. “We’re thrilled that the Stampede continues to welcome new Canadian citizens and create opportunities for them to celebrate with their friends and community.”

“We are pleased to continue to support the Cultural Access Pass program and welcome new Canadians to Stampede,” said Larry Lalonde, group manager, Community Engagement & Communications. “We want everyone to be able to participate in our community celebration.” Calgary Stampede runs from July 7-16, 2017.
