Calgary Stampede Parade

Bike Calgary has been awarded entry to the 2014 Calgary Stampede Parade, and we need your help! Our theme is a Bike Rodeo, and we need approximately 50 volunteers for preparation and participation on Parade Day. Think you have what it takes? We will be holding open auditions for performers on June 1st at 11am at the open surface lot at 9th Ave and 7th Street SW if it is sunny, or at the Centennial Parkade 608 9Ave SW if it rains. We are looking for all ages, but specifically for a few couples that are able to ride Tandem Bikes and Square Dance. Don't want to perform but still want to help? We need help with costumes (both bike and people!), volunteer coordinators, general assistance with bike parking and promotions, etc...  



Are you creative? Good on a bike? Bike Calgary has won entry to the Stampede Parade and we have several spots to fill! Costume designers, crafty people, square dancers, etc needed


Interested applicants can email [email protected]. Auditions will be held Sunday, June 1st at 11am in the surface lot on 9th Ave and 7th St SW (sunny) or the Century Parkade at 9th Ave and 5th (rainy).

That's great news.

I usually drive politicians in the parade, and look forward to seeing Bike Calgary down there.

Maybe you can get David Swan to do a re-ride, I loaded him my bike when the car he was riding in broke down.

Great job

Saw the parade, really enjoyed the Bike Calgary bit. A great implementation of a "rodeo"!
