Day 7 Stampede Food Fiasco Gelato

Wow this year at the Calgary Stampede has been a hot one, best weather I’ve seen for this time of year in a long time, which makes this Day 7 blog post even more fitting.  If you don’t know what gelato is, check it out here www.fiascogelato.ca.  In short, it’s gourmet ice cream, made in small batches with the finest ingredients.  Sorry Fiasco, I know not to call it ice cream, but for the people who don’t know...

Day 6 Stampede Food – BBQ Beef On A Bun

The Annual 10 Days of Stampede Eating is usually written about food on the Calgary Stampede grounds, but today we’ll make an exception.  We were lucky enough to be invited to The Roadhouse Nightclub this afternoon for their first annual Beef on a Bun contest which was also in support of the Calgary Food Bank.  Each beef on a bun was only $1, what a smokin’ deal.  Watch for this event next year, it’s one you...

Day 5 Stampede Food – Lemon Heaven

Isn’t this the best weather for some Lemonade!  There is one lemonade stand that is my favourite at the Calgary Stampede which is Lemon Heaven.  This one we visited is just on the South side of Nashville North, but they are all over the grounds.  If I accidentally get a lemonade from another stand other than this company I feel ripped off.  They do have 3 flavours, original, cherry and one other that I can’t remember.  The one I...

Day 4 Stampede Food – Hot Wisconsin Cheese

This is our favourite at the Calgary Stampede right now. Battered deep fried cheese with dips, who wouldn’t want this.  Well no matter what the cost I do have a weakness for this place, so yummy and so gooey.  I normally order the Super Combo, which have all 3 types of cheese on a little platter, Mozza Fingers, Cheddar Nuggets and Jalapeno Cheddar (my favourite), really it’s worth it just to have it once a year.  There are...

Day 3 Stampede Food – The Colossal Onion

If you love onions, love onion rings, and love deep fried batter, here it is, The Colossal Onion.  A huge onion cut up, battered, deep fried and served with a Santa Fe style dipping sauce.  Delicious if this is your thing.  My mom has to get this at least once a year at the Stampede, which gives me a chance to eat more things because I just poach off her.  Yum Yum! This is somewhat the same Blooming Onion that Outback Steakhouse has,...

Day 2 – Stampede Food – Fresh Cut Fries

We’ve been on a hunt for some really good fresh cut french fries on the grounds for the past few years.  So far the best one we’ve found, I think it’s call “Fresh Cut Fries.”  It’s across from the row of food trucks next to the dream home.  I also believe it’s next to the Pizza 73 food stand.  For $6 you get a large order of fries cooked to order, fries are nice and golden brown, sprinkle some...
