The Calgary Stampede

Did you all have a chance to hit up the Calgary Stampede this year and sample all of the good food and snacks? I know a few of our YYC Food Truck vendors were there! With record-breaking attendance this year it made it the second-largest Calgary Stampede in history! 

Spotlight on NEW Sponsors

Our list of sponsors is a lot longer – thank you all so much!

Our newest Half-Rack sponsor is Sun Spa! Based out of Calgary, this company provides the best deals on hot tubs and hot pools. If you’re looking to create a backyard oasis, Sun Spa is where you start! Visit their showroom in Calgary.

A few Giddy-Up Sponsors have also joined! MacKenzie Investments, a firm that delivers its investment offerings through a multi-boutique structure, with independent in-house investment teams, and Natural Calm, a company founded in 2005 by a husband and wife that wanted to bring health supplements to Canada.
