10 Festivals Around the World to Experience Before You Die Image via actionplan.gc.ca

5. Calgary Stampede

Where: Calgary, Canada
When: July; annually

Because saloons and bull-riding are indicative of the USA's wild, wild West, we rarely associate the term "rodeo" with Canada, but our neighbors to the North dedicate ten whole days to the event every July. If you reckon yourself a cowboy, this one is for you. If not, put on some boots anyway as the grand prize for one of the stampede events is $1,000,000. If bull riding isn't your thing, join the over one million festival goers for the agricultural competitions, parade, concerts, and cowboy costume donning for the entire event.
