We’re Having a Parade Float!
For the first time in a very long time, YMCA Calgary has entered a float in the Calgary Stampede Parade!
It’s being professionally built, is fun and colourful, and of course, will be playing a very recognizable song!
Our Parade Float Team
Our float team this year is made up of YMCA staff, volunteers, and youth leadership students. These folks will be pushing our float, walking and dancing alongside it, and representing YMCA Calgary at one of the most exciting events on Calgary’s calendar!
Say hello when you see us on the route.

The Stampede Parade
The Calgary Stampede Parade kicks off the annual celebration on the first Friday of Stampede. This year’s parade is on Friday, July 4 and begins at 8:55am.
The parade route starts at 6 Ave & 3 St SE and travels west. It turns south at 10 St SW and comes back east on 9 Ave to finish at 4 St SE.
Come join the fun, see some great floats, marching bands, and of course wave to us as our YMCA Calgary float dances past!
