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 10 and 5 day ranahans members will be issued one ranahans member card. This card is transferable to the other executives in your company. The member card does not apply for private dining events.

Guests without tickets who are invited by a member must enter ranahans with a member. Guests must meet the hosting member at the lower concierge desk by the elevator and enter the venue as a group. Guests escorted by the hosting member will have access to the Lounge and patio area, but will not have dining or outdoor seat deck privileges.

Members have the privilege to sign a maximum of four guests at a time into the ranahans Lounge and patio, as long as the member is present (these guests must provide their own admission to the Calgary Stampede).

The member card gives you the following exclusive access and benefits:

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

Special note: Your member card gives you access to ranahans even if you have given your tickets for that event to another member of your organization or group of guests. Regardless of whether you are a table owner for the afternoon or the evening or both, you may sign in up to four guests that are not ticket holders as long as you remain with them.

The member card does not:

  • Carry any additional parking privileges beyond what is provided with your table ticket package (one stall per event)
  • Give you or your visiting guests ranahans dining privileges or access to the outdoor seat deck - these areas are reserved for ticketed guests only

You must also present this card as identification while visiting the ranahans Lounge and wishing to charge to your pre-arranged corporate account.

Extra Tickets

As ranahans is an exclusive venue with an exact number of viewing seats that correspond to the table seats, extra tickets are not available. 


Children & Youths

As a corporate hosting facility, ranahans should be treated as you would a place of business. Amenities and menu choices for young children have not been included in ranahans. Children visiting ranahans must hold a ticket at a dining table and should conduct themselves in a manner congruent with the surroundings. Parents with children not adhering to this will be asked to remove their children from the premises. 


All guests must hold a ticket. Therefore no visitors are permitted.
