Stampede draws tens of thousands of visitors to Calgary for 10 days every summer. It would be great if those folks could see Calgary as it is the other 355 days a year - bursting at the seams with culture. I'd like to see the Stampede co-host an arts festival on the scale and calibre of the '88 Olympic Arts Festival (for those of you who remember - fabulous theatre, circus, visual arts, dance and more). And wouldn't it be great if it happened every year, not just in 2012!
