2021 Calgary Stampede Parade | LIVE

The Calgary Stampede is going ahead with the iconic kick-off to the annual event, but the 2021 Stampede Parade will look vastly different than in years past.

Organizers announced on Wednesday that there will be a scaled-down parade held on the Stampede grounds on Friday, July 9, which is the first day of the 2021 Calgary Stampede.

However, the parade is not open to the public and will instead be broadcast live on Global News and streamed live on and YouTube.

The Parade will still feature many of the things Calgarians know and love about it, including floats, marching bands and mounted riders.

The 2021 Calgary Stampede Parade will start at 8 a.m. on July 9, featuring Katari Right Hand as parade marshal.

Right Hand, a 17-year-old fancy dancer from Siksika First Nation, is featured on the 2021 Calgary Stampede poster.

“I am very proud and excited to be the 2021 Stampede Parade Marshal, so I can represent Niitsitapiiks,” she said in a press release.

Also joining in the festivities will be Lexi Hilderman, the 22-year-old artist who created the 2021 Stampede poster, travelling the route in the Calgary Stampede Foundation carriage.

In addition, 2020 honorary Stampede parade marshal Felipe Masetti Leite will return to Calgary for the event.
