In and around the new Agrium Centre, families can enjoy the classic heavy horse shows, the blacksmith competition, youth livestock championships, the tractor pull and the always-popular Agrium Ag-tivity allowing city folk to try their hand at farming.

For those taking in the iconic Stampede rodeo and chuckwagon races, rounded out by the evening Grandstand Show and fireworks, this year’s show will be Canada 150-focused, entitled “Together — A Show 150 Years in the Making.”

“It’s a yearbook of Canada,” said Savoni.

The evening event celebrates Canada’s milestone birthday, reflecting on the nation’s past, present and future with spectacular surprises, grand imagery and performances from Alberta Ballet and the Young Canadians.

Producer David Pierce, who won an Emmy for his work on the 2010 Vancouver Olympics opening and closing ceremonies, says the show will be the Stampede’s “biggest, most visually spectacular show yet — an extravaganza not to be missed.”
