What is #SafeStampede?
The Calgary Stampede has been celebrated for over 100 years in our community. The excitement around Stampede resonates beyond the grounds, from the community Stampede Breakfasts, a bustling downtown core, to the bars and restaurants where we all gather. As Calgarians, many of us identify with the Calgary Stampede and its celebration of our pioneer heritage and spirit. Its reputation has grown around the world to represent our City.
In light of the success of the #saferedmile initiative during the recent NHL playoff run in our city, a new hashtag #safestampede has been created to celebrate positive behaviour during the Stampede – such as being a respectful friend, co-worker, neighbour and citizen. We look forward to enjoying a Stampede that is safe and fun for everyone.
We have compiled information and resources about some of the ways we can all ensure that the 10 days of Stampede represent the community spirit of Calgary.

I’m a reporter with CBC Calgary and I’d like to connect with one of the folks behind this hashtag and initiative.
Can one of you please shoot me an email at Kate.Adach@cbc.ca?
