  • 2017 is a time of celebrations for GlobalFest.  This year, we are excited to commemorate our 15th anniversary and Canada’s 150th.  To honour these occasions, we have an amazing opportunity for you to join in on the fun.  We would like to invite you to participate at this year’s Calgary Stampede with the GlobalFest International Market from Thursday July 6, 2016 to Sunday July 16, 2016

    The Calgary Stampede is called The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth for good reason. For 10 days every July, Calgary welcomes the world to a spectacular celebration of Western heritage and values.  As a 105-year-old tradition, the Stampede is an important part of Calgary’s identity and an unsurpassed tourist attraction that brings people together from all over the world. 

    The GlobalFest International Market at the Stampede is a true embodiment of Calgary’s commitment to multiculturalism and cultural diversity, and provides vendors the chance to raise awareness for their brands with both local Calgarian’s and visitors from out of town.  This year, the Calgary Stampede is projected to welcome 1.3 million guests through the gates.  This number will allow you to reach a large number of potential guests, which will help increase recognition for your businesses and cultures! 

    Don’t be a slowpoke; space will be limited, so be sure to sign up early to guarantee your spot!  Dust off your boots and practice your “yeehaws”, the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth awaits!

    The deadline to get your agreement in is May 26 - please reply to Wendy Wilson ASAP if you are interested in becoming a vendor.
