Bell Fireworks Spectacular at Stampede Park


The lights may be out at Stampede Park, but the sky will be full of lights with the Bell Fireworks Spectacular. Let’s kick-off Stampede 2020 with a dazzling display of fireworks on Friday, July 3. We’re taking them higher so you can view them from a distance…while still physical distancing. If you can see the city skyline, you’ll be able to see the fireworks!

The Bell Fireworks Spectacular will also cap off this year’s Stampede on Sunday, July 12. Your last chance to keep the community spirit alive and send off the 2020 celebration.

The fireworks will be broadcast live on both nights, and accompanied by a custom soundtrack created exclusively for the Bell Fireworks Spectacular.


July 3 & 12 at 11 p.m.

  • Live Broadcast on CTV Calgary and streamed live via their website
  • Synchronized live radio soundtrack broadcast on Funny 1060 AM
