Calgary restaurant Craft Beer Market will be celebrating the Stampede spirit for ten days this July despite the cancellation of the 2020 event.

On Monday, Craft announced the launch of its so-called “Stampede’ish” event from July 3-10.

During the event, both of Calgary’s Craft locations — downtown and Southcentre – will be decorated with hay bales and wagon wheels and playing toe-tapping country tunes.

In a news release, Craft said the goal of the event is to give the city’s faithful a chance to do some Stampeding in 2020.

“We wanted to give our guests an opportunity to celebrate even though things are a little different this year,” spokesperson Alison Robertson said. “Our team will be decked out in cowboy boots and hats and we look forward to people dusting off their boots to join us.”

“As a born and bred Calgary company, the Stampede and the spirit surrounding that event are an important part of who we are.”
