15 Wild Eats in Calgary

By SEEMA DHAWAN

The Calgary Stampede is behind us, yet some of us are filled with regret over foods we didn’t get a chance to try. Be it because they sold out, or because we couldn’t find them in the first place. To solve this problem and serve foodies everywhere, we’ve compiled the ultimate Calgary Stampede Foods list of where to find Stampede foods off the grounds. Every time you check off a place from this list, tag your photos with #WhereWildEats
