Biographical history

The Calgary Exhibition and Stampede Ltd. holds a combined agricultural fair and rodeo in Calgary, Alberta every July. It also operates sports arenas, catering and convention facilities, horse racing, and casino gambling. The Stampede was organized in 1884 as the Calgary Agricultural Society, with Augustus Carney as the first president. The first exhibition was organized in 1886 and was held annually until 1894. The Agricultural Society became dormant until 1899 when it was reorganized and reactivated under the name Inter-Western Pacific Exhibition Company. In 1910 the name was changed to the Calgary Industrial Exhibition Company. The present name has been used since 1933. The name of the annual fair has varied: Calgary Exhibition (1886-1894), Inter-Western Pacific Exhibition (1899-1903), Calgary Agricultural and Industrial Fair (1904-1906), Calgary Fair (1907), Dominion Exhibition (1908), Alberta Provincial Exhibition (1909-1910), Calgary Industrial Exhibition (1911-1918), Calgary Exhibition (1919-1955), and Calgary Exhibition and Stampede (1956- ). The first Stampede, instigated by Guy Weadick, was held in 1912. It was not repeated until 1919, when a "Great Victory Stampede" was held. The Stampede was held in conjunction with the Calgary Exhibition in 1923, and the combined event was such a success, it was held every July since. In 2012 the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada designated the Stampede as a National Historic Event.
