30X Saloon Experience

We are open.

30X Saloon opens daily from 11:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. for the Stampede Rodeo at 1:30 pm and 6:00 p.m. - midnight for the Evening Show starting at 8:00 pm. 

The Evening Show has been re-imagined.

*NEW As a result of pandemic-related impacts on the 2020 and 2021 chuckwagon racing season across western Canada, the Stampede will not be able to present the Rangeland Derby as part of the 2021 Evening Show. 

For 2021 only, the Calgary Stampede has re-imagined this double-header. Broncs After Dark will be a combination of grit, glamour, live music and celebration. Cheer on talented athletes as they compete in some of the greatest high-energy western competitions and electrifying rodeo events ever seen at the Stampede. Then as the sun sets, the Bell Grandstand Show will follow with The Young Canadians and adrenaline-filled performances that lead to a spectacular fireworks finale. 

We look forward to the return of thunder and thrill of chuckwagon racing in 2022. 

DINING 

It is up to the eventholder to choose a premium or beer and wine only host bar for their guests and advise of allergy and dietary considerations in advance on an event order form.

*NEW As guests arrive the server explains the dining experience and shows guests where to find the QR code for drinks and wine. Guests are served a table-side salad and artisan bun to start their culinary experience. Tables are invited by their server to the chef-served buffet to enjoy a signature culinary experience including carved and grilled choices, an induction pot and gourmet side dishes. Desserts in single servings are set before guests are escorted to their reserved seats in the Grandstand either by their server or Guest Service. 

The server continues with in-seat beverage service for the duration of the Stampede Rodeo or Evening Show. Individual packaged snacks are available throughout the performances. 

An on-site event host must be assigned as our point of contact, be responsible for event guests and who will have authorization to make additions and changes to the event order form. 

At the conclusion of the event a bill including alcoholic beverages, mocktails and special bar requests will be presented to the event host and a signature will be required to sign-off on the amount. All beverage choices not included with a ticket are billed separately after the event to the eventholder, according to the corporate account.

SERVICE STYLE

Servers are responsible for the guest’s experience throughout their semi-private or private event. Bartenders prepare drinks and there are support staff to assist in ensuring a seamless service.

ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE

30X Saloon is located at the south end on the main level of the Grandstand. Guests should access the Grandstand by using the doors at the south end of the Grandstand courtyard. Access is by walking only.

There are dedicated entrance and exit doors at 30X Saloon once inside the Grandstand. Guests will be greeted outside the entrance by Guest Service and asked to present their digital ticket for scanning. They will introduce venue amenities, explain our rules of play, including venue health and safety protocols and re-entry procedures. 

When guests are escorted to their reserved seat in the Grandstand for the performance, servers and Guest Service will escort them by table.

Semi-private and private events have dedicated tables of six to venue capacity. Guests remain at their table until invited by their server to enjoy the chef-served buffet. Adhering to Alberta Health Services guidelines guests are to otherwise remain seated in 30X Saloon.

Guest Service works closely with Food & Beverage to ensure guests are comfortable getting to and from their reserved prime seats in the Grandstand and that they are well informed on any updates pertaining to their event or the performances. They also assist in making sure the reserved seats in the Grandstand are and remain exclusive to guest use.

Physical distancing will be observed upon entry, exit and throughout 30X Saloon and the Grandstand. Entry will be permitted in group cohorts. Face masks will be worn by employees at all times.
