A Little History on the Venue
McMahon Stadium, an iconic landmark in Calgary! Originally built in 1960, in an unprecedented 103 days, the stadium has since witnessed countless thrilling sporting events and unforgettable moments. Home to the Calgary Stampeders (Canadian Football League (CFL)), McMahon Stadium has welcomed fans from far and wide. With seating totalling 35,650, the stadium is the fifth-largest stadium in Canada. It was expanded in several stages from its original 22,000-seat capacity in 1960 to 38,205 in 1988.
Beyond its athletic endeavors, McMahon Stadium also plays host to a wide variety of events that bring together families and friends. One such highlight on its calendar is our much-anticipated Rotary Ribfest YYC. Celebrating the finest in barbecue and mouthwatering ribs, Ribfest will transform the stadium grounds into a food, music and FUN paradise.
What makes this event even more fabulous, is that entry and parking are FREE and if you take the LRT, you can stroll across the pedestrian bridge and not even worry about bringing your vehicle.
