    The 2014 Calgary Stampeders Fanfest - Saturday, May 24th 2014
    8:00am - 1:00pm

    The always-popular Stampeders Fanfest event is held annually at McMahon Stadium and serves as the unofficial kickoff to the new football season!

    This years event will be on Saturday, May 24 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will run rain or shine, so be sure to bring the whole family to this FREE event.

    The day starts with a pancake breakfast served up in the East parking lot, located across from the Ticket Office and Stamps Store. Once the gates open, there are games on the field, the opportunity to interact with Stampeders players, alumni, coaches, Outriders, Ralph the Dog and get autographs. You can also pose for a photo with the Grey Cup, sign up for the Kids Club and browse through the latest authentic gear at the Stamps Store.

    Fanfest is also the first opportunity for fans to pick up their season tickets for the coming year.
    If you haven't purchased your season tickets yet, sales staff will be on site to help you find the perfect seats for a full season of CFL excitement!

    ....and as we had last year, the Calgary Football Officials Association will have a table set up - last year we were in the dressing room, expect the same place this year. Stop by and have a chat. There are lots of opportunities here for people interested in the game and keeping fit. There is a Level 1 Clinic being held in June and again in the early\mid part of August. The season for Minor football kicks off in late Aug and runs up to the end of the CFL regular season. Your time commitment is up to you - you simply enter in a calendar when you are NOT available and you will be scheduled for games at the appropriate level when you are available. And if you get in three or fours games in the year you will easily cover the cost of your kit.

    You will never watch football the same way again if you take up the challenge and get your whistle and stripes. I am entering my 3rd year and am still having a ball with it. Lots to learn - lots of opportunity to grow your football knowledge. Stop by and have a chat. Or visit us at the website in my sign block.

    Question - when do the gates open to McMahon (or the big tent if it is inside)? In the past they have opened at around 9:30 but then the event also lasted until 3. Are they opening earlier this year i.e. 8:30? Or is that just the time when they start serving breakfast?

    Always enjoy this event each year and looking forward to it once again.

    Update - I see the Stamps have updated the page for the Fanfest on their website - gates open at 9:30 as usual with the breakfast starting at 8:30.
