What is the Calgary Conservative Stampede Barbecue?

The Calgary Conservative Stampede Barbecue is one of the premier annual events in Canada’s Conservative movement. With the event’s roots tracing back over 30 years, the barbecue is the traditional gathering place during Stampede for Conservative members, activists, and supporters to gather and hear from national party leaders and to meet public figures from across the country. Typically, the event sells out well in advance and is one of the largest gatherings of Conservatives in the country. The event is a fundraiser for the Calgary Heritage Conservative Association and you will receive a tax receipt for a portion of your ticket price.


How will the event be different in 2022?

In past years, the Calgary Heritage Conservative Association has turned away hundreds of potential attendees because of the limited capacity for seated tables at the venue. For 2022, we are changing the format so that we can accommodate even more than the record-breaking number of guests who attended the last barbecue.

Rather than a seated buffet dinner event, the barbecue this year will be a reception-style outdoor event, with multiple food stations around the grassy area rather than a buffet dinner service. 

The main program will take place in the usual event tent, with limited theatre-style seating available on a first-come, first serve basis. There will also be overflow standing-room only areas with cocktail tables to watch the program. 

When the food is served after the program, limited seated tables will be available in the secondary tent on a first-come, first serve basis so you can enjoy your food with friends and fellow Conservatives.

With these changes allowing us to accommodate more Conservatives than ever before, we are lowering the early-bird ticket price to only $125 to make the event more accessible for grassroots party supporters. 

We hope you can join us for what is sure to be one of the most exciting Conservative Stampede Barbecues ever!

The event is held on July 9, 2022 at Heritage Park (1900 Heritage Drive SW, Calgary, Alberta).

Check-in begins at 4:30pm and doors open at 5:00pm. Check-in closes at 5:45pm sharp. We encourage you to arrive well before the program begins to mix and mingle with fellow Conservatives.

In past years, this event has sold out quickly and the seated dinner format has limited the number of tickets available for sale. This year, there will not be a seated buffet dinner as past attendees are used to. Instead, guests will receive a full meal “reception-style”, with food stations outside the main tent. Outdoor and indoor tables will be available for guests to enjoy their meal at as they mix and mingle with other Conservatives, and chairs and cocktail tables will be available around the venue for guests to use. There will not be any assigned seating or reserved tables. As a result, we will be able to accommodate more Conservatives this year than ever before!

This year, we are introducing a new event format that will allow us to accommodate more Conservatives than ever before. There will not be a seated buffet style dinner like in past years. Limited theatre style seating will be available to watch the program, and unassigned indoor and outdoor tables, chairs, and cocktail tables will be available for guests to enjoy their food at. We appreciate your understanding as we try and include more Conservatives than ever before!

A full meal will be available “reception-style” for guests to enjoy, including slow-roasted striploin of Alberta beef on a bun, as well as other sides and appetizers. Allergens, gluten-free, and vegetarian selections will be labelled.

Yes. Please bring cash, credit, or debit to purchase drinks.

A portion of your ticket price will be allocated as a donation to the Calgary Heritage Conservative Electoral District Association (EDA). We currently estimate that this will amount to $60 per early-bird ticket.

You may contribute a maximum of $1675 to all EDAs in aggregate in the 2022 calendar year. Contributions to EDAs do not impact your contribution limit to the national party or leadership contestants. For more information on contribution limits, visit Elections Canada by clicking here.

The Calgary Heritage Conservative Association receives and manages the proceeds from this event. During national election campaigns, Calgary Heritage transfers funds to target ridings across Canada to help the Conservative Party form a strong, stable, national, Conservative majority government.

The final amount of your tax receipt will vary depending on the final event costs and number of attendees. We currently estimate that you will receive a tax receipt of $60 per early-bird ticket.

Parking is available in the main Heritage Park lot, and ticket purchasers will be provided a ParkPlus event code to register for free parking. If you do not register your vehicle with ParkPlus, you may receive a parking ticket.

Yes, a shuttle service will be available to transport you from the Heritage Park gates to the event tent.

Indoor washroom facilities are available at the event.

This event will proceed rain or shine. The main tents will provide shelter in the event of rain—dress accordingly based on the day’s forecast!

This event is a fundraiser and all sales are final. If you are not able to attend, we encourage you to find someone who can use your ticket as this event normally sells out well in advance.
