Q: Could you please provide me with accommodation information for Bragg Creek along with information on Calgary Stampede packages? We’re interested in cabin lodging

A: The Calgary Stampede has Stampede packages or separate ticket sales which you can order online at or by phone at 1-800-661-1767. Alternatively, there are other companies selling Stampede packages. Here’s a quick list from the Calgary Tourism Office:

Anderson Vacations,, Brewster Vacations Canada,; Cardinal Coach Lines Limited,; and Time Out for Touring Inc. The Calgary Tourism Office also has a web site for lodging information which you can access at

Located about 30 minute drive from Calgary, Bragg Creek doesn’t have any log cabins. However, Malcolm (Mal) Anderson, Executive Director of The Cowboy Trail Tourism Association notes he can assist in providing you with cabin rentals for alternative places. “Before I proceed I would like to know whether you’re interested in fancy or rustic.

Also, I need to know the number of people, number of bedrooms. Then, of course, your dates,” he says.

For more information on cabin rentals, you can reach Mal at The Cowboy Trail Tourism Association, phone:(403) 652-7010 or Toll Free: 1-866-627-3051.
