Tickets & Guests


Depending on the size of your group, you will be issued combinations of tickets in a bound package for your table or private dining event.

You will note that the covers of the ticket books indicate the different days. You will receive a separate book for each day and/or event. Each ticket indicates your table number and a corresponding seat number for the outdoor seat deck. These tickets will also admit you to the Calgary Stampede through any of the three Calgary Stampede entrance gates and to the Grandstand on the day of the event.


All five and 10-day members will be issued one ranahans member card per table for special access to the ranahans Lounge + Patio throughout the Calgary Stampede, subject to venue capacity. This card is transferable to other guests. The member card gives access to ranahans even if the dining tickets for that event have been gifted. The member card does not apply to the private dining rooms.

Guests who are invited by a member must enter ranahans with the member. Guests must meet the hosting member in the ranahans Lobby and enter as a group. Guests escorted by the hosting member will have access to the lounge and patio area, but will not have access to any dining room or outdoor seat deck privileges.

Members are expected to remain with their guests and assume responsibility for their conduct while on the premises.

The member card provides the following exclusive access and benefits:

  • Unlimited Calgary Stampede admission
  • Access to ranahans Lounge + Patio for either the afternoon or evening 
  • The privilege to sign a maximum of four guests at a time into the lounge and patio, as long as the member is present (these guests must provide their own admission to the Calgary Stampede)

The member card does not:

  • Carry any additional parking privileges 
  • Provide ranahans dining room privileges or access to the outdoor seat deck - these areas are reserved for guests with tickets for the dining room and private dining rooms

Members must present their card as identification while visiting the ranahans Lounge + Patio if they plan to charge to a corporate account.
