Chow Down, Cowboy Style, at Some of Calgary’s Best Stampede Breakfasts

 Stampede pancake breakfasts are a Calgary tradition! (Family Fun Calgary)

Mmmmm pancakes!  One of the many great things about Stampede is that you can get your fill of flapjacks, little sausages, and juice boxes at all the various breakfasts around the city. Dress up your little buckaroos in their Western best and check out some of the city’s many pancake breakfasts. We’ve listed some of the city’s breakfasts, but this is by no means an exhaustive list! Be sure to check out to see breakfasts near you. Try their event calendar for an easy way to see all the available breakfasts on each day! Send us an email if you would like to see your breakfast on our list. (We’ve also thrown a few BBQs onto the list, because why not?!)
