Clubhouse

This is the hidden gem during the Calgary Stampede.

The Clubhouse Rustic Kitchen overlooks the arena and track for the Calgary Stampede Rodeo or Evening Show, featuring the Cowboys Rangeland Derby Chuckwagon Races. First opened at Stampede 1974, this exciting stepped and glass-enclosed restaurant beneath the graceful, cable-suspended roof was an architectural marvel at the time.

Located on the fourth floor of GMC Stadium, this hidden gem can host corporate or family events at best-value, offering flexibility and authenticity like no other venue on Stampede Park. It is the only sit-down restaurant in GMC Stadium that welcomes reservations and walk-in guests (based on availability).

The Clubhouse Rustic Kitchen offers three distinct experiences.

STEPPED SEATING These tiered seats are indoors behind expansive seamless glass windows with an unobstructed view to the arena and track. Tickets are only available in advance through the Ticket Office to reserve a designated seat in this section. No reservations are required.

Single tickets through to larger group sizes can be accommodated. Guests can enjoy the afternoon or evening performance while being offered selections from an a la carte menu or expansive buffet, all from the comfort of their seat. Food and beverage charges apply.

To purchase these tickets contact tickets@calgarystampede.com.

RESTAURANT DINING Reservations can be made in advance for 10 or more guests. For groups under 10, we do not take reservations - it is first-come, first-serve.

Guests in restaurant dining are able to enjoy a wide variety of selections from the signature buffet prior to going to their seats elsewhere in GMC Stadium for the performance they are attending. The view of the arena and track is limited from within the restaurant.
