With just 50 days left until “The Greatest Show on Earth”, the Calgary Stampede (July 5 to 14) just announced the 50 new midway foods you can drool over this year.

Also new for 2019 is the “Take a Bite Outta Stampede!” guided food tour. The hour-and-a-half-long tour runs weekdays during the Stampede and costs $79 (this includes your same-day admission to the grounds). Diners will be able to skip the lineups, chat with owners and eat at five food stands or trucks. The portions will be smaller than what you would purchase on your own but larger than bite-size. Wear your stretchy pants.

Here are the new foods for 2019.
