Please make note of this new entrance for your Infield Suites parking, as NO vehicle access will be available from the former 5A Street entrance off 14th Avenue SE at the north side of Stampede Park.

Since this preferred parking lot is located inside the Calgary Stampede gates, everyone in the vehicle will require an Infield Suites ticket.

As a suite holder, your passes are valid from 12:30 pm through to the conclusion of the GMC Rangeland Derby. Parking passes must remain visible inside vehicles at all times while parked in the Infield.

For your convenience, taxi loading and drop-off is available at the south end of the Calgary Stampede next to the Erlton CTrain.
