If you’ve never been to the Calgary Stampede, then you are missing out. Not be cause of the Chuckwagons or the rodeos, or rides that fall apart while people are on them.

No, for me, Stampede is about the food.

A lot of people think Stampede is all about the mini-donuts, but this year’s line-up food (yes, they send out a press release about food,) is really impressively yummy.

Some of the culinary highlights include:

Doughnut Burger – Glazed donut, hamburger and fixings, Glazed Donut.
Colossal Onion –One large onion which is cut to resemble a flower, breaded and deep fried.
Deep Fried Pop Tart- This one is self-explanatory.
Pork chop-on-a-stick– Ditto
10 different flavors of Poutine – BBQ chicken, Mexican, Italian, Greek, as a start.

The Calgary Stampede runs July 8-17, 2011.
