Friends of the Young Canadians

The Young Canadians of the Calgary Stampede have been captivating audiences for half a century with their energetic dance and vocal performances. As part of Calgary’s cultural community, the Young Canadians School of Performing Arts provides training in a variety of disciplines to develop young Calgarians. As a ‘helping’ association, the Friends of the Young Canadians is a non-profit volunteer association that raises funds to provide additional training and performing opportunities for the students, and assists with various events, videos and other needs of the program.

Young Canadians Fundraisers

The Friends of the Young Canadians run two or more general fundraisers per year; one in the fall and one in the spring.
Fundraiser information will be posted in the fall and again in the spring when fundraiser items are available. 

Stampede Program Sales

Would you like to see the grandstand show? Volunteer to help with program sales during the 10 days of Stampede and you’ll get entry to the park and admission to the show that evening. Program sales signups start in mid-June.
