The Rogue Star team cannot wait for summer and we’re sure you feel the same! Today, we’re here to talk about one of the greatest summertime events that graces the province each year: The Calgary Stampede. Stampede attracts guests near and far to attend the “Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth”! Competitions, shows, and amusement attractions have thousands of people gathering each year to experience one of Alberta’s greatest yearly events.

Make sure you don’t miss out on this week long opportunity to market your brand with promotional items that you can offer as beautiful souvenirs for guests! We’re here to offer you amazing product ideas to consider for the 2020 Calgary Stampede and we’re not here to be cookie cutter! Have a look below to find some ideas that will get everyone off their saddles!


Rodeos and leather are two peas in a pod. What better way to attract the crowd than with beautifully crafted and branded items that will go with their western get-ups. Bags and tags are practical items to brand and offer. Money clips, leather patches, notebooks, key chains, and blankets are luxurious options for those looking to add leather’s beautiful texture to their belongings “just because”.


Let’s get loud and have fun! The Calgary Stampede is a week full of noise and chaos and these products are not here to calm that down! Items you can wear like patches, belt buckles, stickers, sunglasses, and tattoos will have guests accessorizing to their heart’s desire! Noise makers, hacky-sacks, and phone accessories are perfect for running around between shows. Keep your belongings with you, entertain the kids during lulls, and liven up the crowd when the shows start. When it’s time to take a break, fold out chairs and hammocks are great for relaxing before you take in some evening shows and celebrations.


Guests want a drink in their hand and their feet in the stands as they watch various shows and competitions. Make sure you cater to this with well branded products that will feed guests’ need for liquid fuel inside and outside of Stampede. Stampede is the most anticipated week long party for those who care to participate with adult beverages. Coolers, koozies, and key chains are all fitting and practical for branded items for this crowd. Check out trendy drink ware options like speckled and copper colours/textures to offer options for all ages and liquids.


Hoodies, shirts, and bandanas that aren’t so blah. We have hundreds of options for you to choose and have printed to your heart’s desire! Trendy t’s for this year’s tastes, light jackets, hats that sure are ‘Berta and not too cowboy, and everything in between. Get these items embroidered, digitally printed, or screen printed to suit your needs. Bandanas need not be so bland – get them sublimated with amazing artwork and branding and make them the talk of the town.

All of these items serve as souvenirs for years to come and are great to use all summer for the good ‘ol outdoorsy folk.
