Your 2018 Stampede ride guide

Stampede is one of Calgary’s biggest events of the year and will take place from July 5 – 15. With over 1 million people visiting the city, we expect there will be more requests than usual—especially during the evening hours. Here are a few tips to have a smooth ride, every time.

The Uber Pickup Zone

Come hang out and relax in our Uber Pickup Zone between 4pm and 3am before heading home. Enjoy free wifi, phone charging stations, water, a photobooth, and more. Meet them curbside on 11 Ave. and you’ll be on your way in no time.

The Uber Pickup Zone is located across from Cowboy Casino on 12 Ave. SE and 3 St. SE. Look for the large Uber tent and signage at the entrance.

Uber Eats at the Uber Pickup Zone

Skip the lines at the midway and fuel up for the big outdoor show with meals from some of Calgary’s favourite restaurants. Whether you’re hankering for lunch before bull riding or a late-night treat after some serious line dancing, check out the Uber Eats blog for our rodeo recommendations.
