Alberta Magazines Get in the Cowboy Spirit

With an office in the heart of cowboy city there’s no avoiding Stampede and rodeo season—and who would want to? Once a year Calgarians get to trade in their business attire for those dashing duds, partake daily in those fabulous free feasts, and party till the cows come home. Yet, with all of this fuss and fanfare about the Stampede, Calgarians tend to forget that it’s also rodeo season throughout Western Canada.

With that in mind, here are just a few of the Alberta magazines offering events, ideas, and info to help you get in the cowboy spirit throughout the province:

airdrielife (Summer 2010 issue) - 2010 Airdrie Pro Rodeo Guide, plus a story featuring Airdrie’s bull riding Joe Messina
Avenue Calgary (July 2010) - Four Calgarians share their Stampeding styles, secrets and suggestions in "4 ways to Stampede"
Canadian Cowboy Country (June/July 2010) – 2010 Western Vacation Map “Your Guide to All Things Cowboy”, as well as a Quick Guide to the 2010 Highlights at the Calgary Stampede
