Year after year, the fashion at the Calgary Stampede changes. While there’s never any shortage of denim, plaid and other western wear, attendees embrace personal expression in their looks.

The fashion seen on the grounds is often a mix of current street style trends with a hint of western,  traditional western wear and cultural attire. In the Agriculture Building, presenters are frequently seen wearing everyday farm attire, and at Elbow River Camp, traditional regalia is often displayed and worn. At the rodeo, fans in the stands are usually decked out in denim, Wrangler long sleeves, cowboy boots, hats and more.

Here’s a look at some of the outfits that we’ve seen on the Stampede grounds this year.

It’s hot,” says Eskesen, as the weather was 26 degrees Celsius. “But I definitely think denim on denim is a cowboy look.”

“If you watch Open Range and see the “Wanted: Robert Sheridan” sign, that’s me,” says Sheridan, who used to work in the film industry. “I just got my beard straightened at the hair booth in the BMO Centre and it’s too straight for me, I usually like it a bit more messy.”
